The islands surrounding Bailey Island are rich in tales of pirate treasure and adventure.

Bailey Island, originally called Newaggin, was first settled by Will Black, a trader from Kittery in the 1600’s. The island was later claimed by Deacon Timothy Bailey of Hanover, Massachusetts, who bought the island for 1 pound of tobacco and 1 gallon of rum. He named the island for himself.

Gold was supposedly found on Elm Island, Cedar Ledge and Pond Island. Pond Island is also the site of the ghost tale telling of a murdered pirate who stands guard over a buried treasure.
