The Tragic Story Of Why This Coastal Maine Mansion Sits Abandoned
Maine is one of the most heavily forested states in the country. Even in the densely populated (for Maine, at least) southern Maine, the towns and cities are surrounded by pine tree forests. Because of that, you never know what lays hidden just beyond those trees. Factories, schools, houses… Most of these buildings and structures are still in use, but hundreds across the state sit abandoned.
One of these abandoned structures is a million dollar mansion perched on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. While not massive, it is a good sized vacation home with amazing views.
So, why was it abandoned? Two groups of urban explorers tell the same story in their videos about the mansion. While we cannot find anything online confirming the story, locals insist the following story is true. Supposedly, a wealthy family from China fell in love with the coast of Maine and decided to make the area their home. The purchased a plot of land and built a mansion. Sadly, one of the family’s sons was playing near the edge of the cliff. Somehow, he fell from the cliff and he passed away from his injuries. Heart broken by the tragedy, the family packed up and moved back to China. Since then, the mansion has set empty.
