“For history buffs.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

there is not much to look at, unless you're into witchcraft, but the “Buck” is Col. Buck, founder of Bucksport, the town in which it is located.The tombstone of Colonel Jonathan Buck, features a mysterious image, perhaps of a woman's stocking foot or boot. It was caused, according to legend, because Colonel Buck burned a witch and her leg rolled out of the bonfire.
