    The sheer size of the fort and incredible workmanship it took to construct makes Fort Knox appear as the midcoast Maine version of the Great Pyramid. The irony of Fort Knox is in what didn’t occur—no enemy ever fired on it and no soldiers ever died in combat there.

    The history of the fort is fascinating but it is the eerieness of Fort Knox that brings thousands of people to visit each year—from the most skeptical visitor who has felt a heaviness in the air to those who come for a paranormal experience led by professional ghost-trackers committed to scientifically proving that the fort is indeed haunted. What or who is haunting the fort is the subject of lively debate.
