Stephen King’s Bangor, Maine home is the Graceland of horror. It’s the house that Stephen King penned many of his most famous horror novels. But until now, fans have not had the opportunity to visit the interior of the home. However, some visitors may be able to visit and stay the night at Stephen King’s house.
Bangor City Council just rezoned the historic Victorian mansion. The Rolling Stones confirmed that a request by King and his wife Tabitha had been approved. The Council agreed to rezone Stephen King’s home as a non-profit. This would allow the home to be used as a museum that would house an archive of King’s work. The museum would offer restricted visits by appointment only.
The home would serve as sort of a writers retreat that could house up to five writers at a time. It is unclear if members of the general public would be allowed to visit the museum or stay at the retreat. Regardless, the Council’s ruling opens the doors for some lucky writers to stay at Stephen King’s house.
One of the concerns of the Council was not to disrupt the other residents of King’s neighborhood. While the Bangor, Maine home was made famous as King’s residence, he rarely stays at the home. King owns several homes and spends a lot of his time in Florida.
