Bangor in Stephen King’s footsteps

Stephen King’s hometown, Bangor, in Maine, has not only provided the author with plenty of inspiration, but also features prominently in several of his movies.

Mount Hope Cemetery

If you’ve watched the movie Pet Sematary, you will most definitely recognize Mount Hope Cemetery. At almost 200 years old, it’s one of America’s oldest cemeteries.

Thomas Hill Standpipe

The water tower in Bangor is an important and intimidating feature in It, which we discover in the new film, starring Bill Skarsgård. The tower was built in 1897 and King wrote parts of the book sitting on a bench below it.

The Drainpipe

At the corner of Union Street and Jackson Street, you’ll find the drainpipe where Pennywise the Clown, the monster in It, makes his entrance and kills young Georgie Denbrough.

Stephen King’s house

Built in 1858 and surrounded by a black fence featuring gloomy and ghoulish figures, this is where you’ll see King fans posing nearly every day. The master himself is often at home, but he also owns a property in Florida and could just as easily be there.
