This photo shows the excellent Wrought iron work outside King's house in Bangor. It was started in 1981 and completed 2 years later. The entire fence, including ornamental statues was hand made by Terry Steel after he was commissioned by Stephen King.

An excellent photo of the King's residence in Bangor. It is locally known as the William Arnold House and was built in 1858 for the princely sum of $7,000

A photo from inside the fence. The first floor of the cylindrical tower is Tabatha's office, while Stephen uses a room at the rear, above the swimming pool's dressing rooms. There was a rumour that a ghost haunted the living room of the house, even after the King's moved in
This poor quality screen capture is the only photo I have of Stephen King's author wife Tabitha. Author of a number of books, she has made a name for herself in writing circles

Well we have all read about the infamous statue of Paul Bunyan, so here he is - bigger than life, and made of plastic!
Although it's a poor quality photo, this one shows the whole King family in the pool at their Bangor home. It is said that Tabitha swims here almost every day.

This relatively large cemetery is located near a house in which King lived in Brewer (town beside Bangor). It differs from most in theat there are actally no people buried here. They are all pets. Yes this is the "Pet Sematary", although it has been mentioned to me that this does look very much like Mount Hope Cemetary in Bangor, not Brewer, a location associated with at least one of Stephen's movies
One of the most memorable scenes for me in the book "It" is when the Derry standpipe crashes to the ground and rolls away. This is the standpipe, or water tower, in Bangor was used as inspiration for that scene

A different picture of the Standpipe in Bangor. This shows quite well the sheer size of the tower, with the small entry door shown on the bottom left of the picture
