Route 2A is known for being a haunted, dangerous road. The Maine country singer Dick Curless even wrote a song about the haunted road called “A Tombstone Every Mile.” Supposedly, many truck drivers have died while bringing potatoes to Boston on a dangerous turn. There have also been rumors of a woman screaming that a husband is trapped in a vehicle but when travelers stop, the woman vanishes. Others have supposedly seen a little girl on the side of the road who was hit by a semi-truck long ago.
“Here’s one for the bucket list, although for some it might be too close to the bucket for comfort.” The Inn at the Agora features a new crypt room where a Catholic priest rested for a hundred years until 2009 when his body was moved to a nearby cemetery. The crypt room includes a selection of 60 classic horror movies, a living area, and a custom-built pine coffin that fits two.
