The home of the wonderfully weird Stephen King was officially rezoned by the city of Bangor, Maine, to become a museum in tribute to the famed author. The museum which will reside at 47 West Broadway, will display King’s works along with up to five other writers at any one time, visits are available by appointment, but appear to be restrictive.
While I’m not much of a book reader, Most of the adaptations of his work are pretty great, and I would likely visit this museum dedicated to him, except Maine is pretty far away from me at the moment. You can check out what Bangor city councilor Ben Sprague had to say to Rolling Stone below.
“The King Family has been wonderful to the City of Bangor over time and have donated literally millions of dollars to various causes in the community. Preserving his legacy here in Bangor is important for this community.”
As I said above, while I’m not much of a book reader, (though I read on the internet all day) I do appreciate the stories of Stephen King, and the royally f**ked up places his mind can go to. And speaking of Stephen King, don’t forget Castle Rock Season 2 is just a few days away.
