The Cross on Maiden's Cliff

Barbara F. Dyer explains the origins of the cross on Maiden's Cliff in Camden.
A parking lot filled with automobiles very frequently is seen at the foot of Mt. Megunticook. Locals and tourist like to make the easy climb to Maiden's Cliff to see the view of Megunticook Lake from the cross.

If one is seeing it for the first time, their question may be, "Why [is] there a white cross as a sentinel on the sheer cliff?"

Answer: The cross marks a tragedy that happened many years ago.
