[[File:0005a.jpg|thumb|Victoria Winters stands atop Widows' Hill]]'''Widows' Hill''' was a high elevation point in [[Collinsport]], [[Maine]] and the location of the [[Collinwood]] mansion ([[1]]). It was one hundred feet from the edge of the cliff to the water below, and on a cloudless day, one could see twenty miles out to sea from the cliff along the water ([[2]], [[9]]). The drive into town from Collinwood was two hundred feet long ([[17]]). The tide along the water was extremely strong ([[52]]).

Widows' Hill acquired its name because women used to wait on the cliff and look out to sea, watching for their ill-fated husbands' ships to return.

(It was later revealed it was [[Joshua Collins]] that built [[Collinwood]].)

Some people in Collinsport claimed that the widows still walked the hill 175 years later as ghosts. The wailing sounds coming from the hill were believed to be the sobbing widows, rather than the wind, and some old timers in town claimed to have seen widows walking the hill from a distance ([[12]]).
