Episode 16 - Jonathan Buck Monument of Bucksport
To get into the Halloween spirit, we talked fact and fiction regarding the Jonathan Buck monument in downtown Bucksport and the stain in its granite that appears to be in the shape of a woman’s boot. Legend has it that Jonathan Buck condemned a woman to death and her leg rolled out of the fire where she was burned, only to reappear as the outline atop the monument. We talked with Jonathan’s direct descendent, his great, great, great, great, great, great grandson, Ed Buck, the president of the Bucksport Historical Society, for the truth behind the story.
