BANGOR — If you’re looking to take a walk on the darker side of history, members of the Bangor Historical Society can give you a tour.
A man who was number one oN the FBI’s most wanted list and Bangor’s first murder victim are buried at the Mount Hope Cemetery.
“This is our fourth year doing some sort of iteration of our Darker Mount Hope and it’s really fun to get out in the cemetery while being respectful,” said curator, Matt Bishop.
People will have the opportunity to tour the cemetery after dark, while getting a run down of some of its most famous residents.
‘Al Brady always gets mentioned. We just had his anniversary this Monday and a couple of the other ones are talking about symbolism on the stones so you can walk through any cemetery and get an idea of a day in the life of someone,” Bishop said.
Instead of one big group, tours will be running every twenty minutes so people can stay distanced.
“We want to have to do this and have a spooky holiday,” Bishop said. “So we’re trying to make sure everyone is taking appropriate precautions for our safety and the safety of the public.”
You will need to wear a mask and tickets are required in advance.
