Abandoned Maine nudist colony revealed in eye-opening photos
Abandoned Maine nudist colony revealed in eye-opening photos | Daily Mail Online
By James Wilkinson For Dailymail. Miles from civilization, hidden in a thick brush of bare trees and brown winter grass, lie the warped and decayed buildings of a once thriving colony. Eerie and forgotten, it looks like something from a Stephen King novel - appropriate, given that it sits in the woodlands of his home state of Maine. But once, rumor has it, this crumbling pile was home to a group of naturists from nearby Durham who'd enjoy the woodlands while soaking in the soft summer sun. Take a hike: The remains of the colony are miles away from the nearest town, and must be hiked to says local history buff Tia Nadeau.
But for members of the Dirigo Naturist Association, a nude recreation club known until this month as Bare Nekkid Mainers, finding places to take it all off has been anything but easy. When they tried to plan a dance for New Year's Eve, three function halls turned them away. When they scheduled a Labor Day lobster feed, a campground accepted their reservation, but canceled it later. The Bangor nudists were thrust into the spotlight in January, when police were called to a bowling alley they had rented for one of their popular nude bowling parties.
A couple opened a clothing-optional resort on a dairy farm in Albion in called "Yorktown Recreation. Clothing is no longer optional. Seems the Appleton Ridge Pond has been closed to clothing optional aspect. This is sad, so sad.
