In the 1800s ships filled the river and the riverbanks bustled with activity. Taverns and brothels competed with shops, businesses and warehouses for attention. Engaging costumed tour guides will walk you alongside presidents, gangsters and ghosts from the past on these evening walks through Bangor history.
