Stephen King’s home is being converted into a writer’s retreat for people working to finish their passion projects. How can you get inside?
There’s something magical about being where you know the greats have been. Writing in the place where the people that inspired you once wrote. Now, you can travel to Bangor, Maine, and sit inside Stephen King’s (haunted) house — and write!
The Bangor City Council unanimously approved Friday a request by King and his wife to rezone their home as a non-profit. This would allow them to house an archive of King’s work and up to five writers at a time. So, basically there is a Stephen King Museum you can live and write in.
By appointment only, obviously.
“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.”
