Rockland ME  is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Captain Lindsey House Inn. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.

The History

When Sea Captain George Lindsey built the (current) Captain Lindsey House in 1837, it was one of Rockland’s first inns. At one time, traveling theaters were popular and actors went from town to town performing. Many that came through Rockland stayed at Captain Lindsey, and some of their exuberant performances can still be felt here. Additionally, the house has served as the offices of the water company, a rooming house, and later returning as an inn.

The Hauntings

When booking a room, make sure to ask for a room on the first floor. There's a good chance you will hear people walking around on the hallway or even doors slamming on their own. Imagine hearing furniture being moved around on the upper floor even when no one is upstairs. Each room seems to have its own story. In a few of the rooms, you’ll first see the beds are made neatly, covers smooth, but if you go back into the room later, a handprint can be seen on one of the beds, or on other beds, there are impressions as if someone had been sitting on it. A cabinet in the sitting room will show a woman’s face. Faint voices have been heard, and pictures reveal many orbs in all parts of the house.

The owners believe that all the antiques that fill the house are the root cause of all the spectral activity.  Not to mention, the incredible history that is still penetrated in its walls that wish to tell a story.  Many say that Captain Lindsey is still lurking in his living space. Chillingly, a Scientologist once told the owners that there may be as many as 35 other spirits there as well. 

You could say history is still alive at the Captain Lindsey House as you will feel when you walk into this historical gem!
