Stephen King

Details Per Rolling Stone:

On Wednesday night, the Bangor City Council unanimously approved a request by King and his wife Tabitha to rezone their home as a non-profit, allowing it to house an archive of King’s work (offering restricted visits by appointment) and up to five writers at a time. The couple was not present at the meeting. In recent years, the family has spent most of their time on the road or in Florida or Oxford County, Maine, according to their lawyer, Warren Silver.

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, one of the city councilors, Ben Sprague, told Rolling Stone. Preserving his legacy here in Bangor is important for this community.

They did not want the house to become a Dollywood or some kind of tourist attraction, David Gould, a Bangor planning officer, told New England Cable News. That would bring all sorts of people to the neighborhood, and they have other neighbors that live there.

Bangor, Maine was the inspiration for the fictional town of Derry, Maine for King’s book and eventual film adaptations of IT.

This is thrilling news for all of us Constant Readers and Stephen King fans. I can’t wait to see what the future holds with the development of this. I am moving this up on my bucket list.
