Gargoyles at Stephen King House Bangor MaineStephen King House Bangor MaineThe Stephen King home features gargoyles and bats. The ironwork is quite fascinating. Out of respect for Mr. King’s privacy, we will not reveal the exact address of the Stephen King home, although a visit to Bangor and doing some local queries will probably get you there. Please respect privacy, take only photos, and leave with only memories. The gate to the home features a spider and the letter “K”. The gargoyles can be seen in some of the corners. A frolicking frog can be seen from the sidewalk and appears to jump out of bushes.Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine and spent part of his childhood in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where his father’s family was at the time, and in Stratford, Connecticut.
