Natural Wonder. Endless Discovery.

Devil's Half Acre Walking Tour

Even though Maine enacted a Prohibitory Law in 1851, Bangor didn’t comply. In the area known as the “Devil’s Half Acre” saloons & brothels reigned and vice & violence thrived.

Led by the city’s most notorious Madam, Fan Jones, this tour shines a light on Bangor’s wicked side and tells the tales of the people who are just as much a part of the city’s history as those who lived in the majestic homes on Broadway.

This tour meets at the Bangor Historical Society/Thomas A. Hill House, 159 Union Street, Bangor.
