Once a popular tourist destination in the Down East region of Maine, within its borders are still small segments of human habitation. Its ruin is home to the largest parts of Acadia National Park, including Cadillac Mountain, the highest point within twenty-five miles of the coastline of the Eastern United States.
Prior to a catastrophic 1947 fire, the town was a famous summer colony for the elite and subsequently became a vital part of Acadia National Park. After the Great War, salvagers and repeated returns of the Fog and creatures took a toll on the area. The situation was exacerbated by the Bar Harbor bridge connecting the island to the mainland collapsing due to a lack of maintenance. The town's boardwalk houses the last remaining town on the island, named Far Harbor, possibly due to the damaged B on the old Bar Harbor sign looking like an F.
Many a landslide has blanketed this rural town with many of its sprawling locals becoming partially buried. Time however has been the ruins worst devastator. Most of the major roads are still passable and many locals are still accessible.
Behind the scenes
Bar Harbor is based on the real world location of the same name.
