Bunkers Harbor

Bunkers Harbor is on the eastern side of Schoodic Peninsula in Gouldsboro, Maine. This shows some lobster boats moored in the evening after a day's harvest.

The story, provided by a descendant of the area and one that was passed on by his late grandmother, is that Bunkers Harbor was named after the Battle of Bunker Hill. There was, and is, a much smaller village to the immediate south close to the Schoodic Park exit called Won Squeak. This was named so after a Native American Indian's wife fell off a cliff there (by the stream that runs out to the harbor) and uttered one squeak. Many years later, the Won Squeak story became associated with Bunkers Harbor.
