PROSPECT, Maine — Maine’s Fort Knox is going to be featured on a TV program about ghosts.

The Department of Conservation says stars of SyFy Channel’s program “Ghost Hunters” will reveal their findings Wednesday, April 6 about whether the fort along the Penobscot River near Bucksport is haunted.

State park historian Tom Desjardin says it’ll be nice to see Fort Knox presented on the national stage.

Desjardin says there are no official reports of hauntings at Fort Knox, and only three soldiers on record died while at the fort.

He says that if there are ghosts at Fort Knox, they’re polite and pose no threat to visitors. printed on August 23, 2017
