Presque Isle Historical Society is pleased to announce a new travel package designed to showcase a bit of the rich history of the area while enjoying the scenery. The fall package runs from October 10 through the 12th, and, due to the proximity to Halloween, is geared a bit more towards the macabre. The package includes a presentation on the lynching of Jim Cullen, the only known lynching in New England that took place just outside of Presque Isle; a guided tour of the 1875 Vera Estey House Museum; a guided tour of the historic Fairmount Cemetery; a presentation on the history and traditions of Halloween; and the Society’s Haunted Lantern Tour, a slightly scary and kinda’ creepy tour by lantern light showcasing true stories of Presque Isle’s past. The package is all inclusive – meals, lodging, transportation to/from the hotel to all local events, tours, and taxes. The cost is $225 per couple per night. Due to the limited seating aboard the trolley, maximum participation is 32 people and a minimum of 10 participants is required. Some of the venues may be changed at the discretion of the Society. To make reservations, to make a tax deductible contribution, or for more information on the packages or any other program of the Society, please contact Presque Isle Historical Society at (207) 762-1151 or You may also visit their website at
