Stephen King to Turn His Spooky Maine Home into a Museum

The legendary horror author Stephen King is all set to turn his iconic blood-red mansion into a retreat for few of his biggest fans!

On Wednesday, the Bangor City Council have allegedly approved King’s request to rezone his home as a non-profit. 


The 72-year-old along with his wife, Tabitha, 70, had recently made the request to the city council in order to turn the property in Bangor, Maine, into a museum. The property will house an archive of King’s work, which is currently held at his alma mater, the University of Maine and also it will serve as a writer’s retreat for up to five writers at a time.

According to reports, the chosen writers will be able to live in a guest house next door that King purchased in 2004 and fans will have to schedule appointments to see materials in the archives.

In a statement, City Councilor, Ben Sprague said, “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.”

The large estate with a towering wrought-iron fence — detailed with spiders and bat-winged creatures, have always been a hot spot for King Fans. Many of them often stop by to click a picture of the mysterious residence.

King however explained in a 1983 essay that the idea for it began brewing when he first moved in the home in Bangor. He wrote, “I had a very long book in mind, a book which I hoped would deal with the way myths and dreams and stories — stories, most of all — become a part of the everyday life of a small American city.” 

According to report, King and his wife will stay at their second home in Florida where they can enjoy more privacy.
