Did you know Maine is more than just a hotbed of fictional horrors? We’re coming for you, Stephen King. The Pine Tree State is also home to at least one maybe-dead maybe-ghost, and we honor her today on Is This a Ghost? (The answer is…maybe?)
This is the story of Mary Howe. Come for the ghost, stay for the Hippocratic Oath for gravediggers, the transcendentalism of Batman, the right temperature for not-dead hot stones, horse-drawn busses of 1882, the perfect month for pizza, and Glidden: The “Nick” of the 19th century.
