About this event

Explore Bangor's dark side and take a walk amid the shadows during the Bangor Historical Society's Darker Mount Hope Cemetery Tour, Friday, October 21, 2022.


As the night deepens while you meander the paved paths, a cast of living souls will regale you with dramatic, moving, touching, mysterious, and even spooky stories —sprinkled with a bit of history, of course— about the permanent residents of Mount Hope.


The nighttime walking tour of one of the oldest garden cemeteries in the nation is an annual fundraiser for the Bangor Historical Society and a seasonal favorite.


Guests should check-in at the Superintendent's Lodge at Mount Hope Cemetery (1048 State Street, Bangor) no sooner than 20 minutes before your departure time. Tour groups are capped at 15 guests. The route is roughly one mile, and guests should plan to spend approximately 1.5 hours.


We advise guests to dress warmly and bring a flashlight. Parking is available along both sides of the cemetery entry road. 


Advanced tickets are required. Questions may be directed to the museum curator via email at curator@bangorhistoricalsociety.org or by calling 207-942-1900.
