Explore the wicked side of Bangor on this short walking tour! Discover the area of vice and violence that came to be known as the Devil's Half-Acre, where despite Maine's 1851 Prohibitory Law, saloons and drinking establishments thrived in Bangor alongside brothels and overcrowded tenements. Hear the stories of Madams, prostitutes, wild Irishmen, lumbermen and sailors as well as the beleaguered police and reformers who tried to clean up the town. No members of the Bangor Temperance Society of the National Purity Association allowed! Recommended for adults only.
