Join us while we tour Stephen King’s Derry, Maine. We will visit locations of inspiration, books, movies, and discuss the generous philanthropic donations the Kings have made to the “Queen City,” Bangor, Maine.
Join us for a Derry Tour that includes access to the Derry Standpipe!
References to the Standpipe include:
~being destroyed in the book IT during a huge storm
~a plaque at the base of the standpipe being vandalized to say, “PENNYWISE LIVES” in Dreamcatcher,
~in 11/22/63 Jake buys a pillowcase with a picture of the standpipe on it to hide a gun!
We will only offer this tour 3 times a year!
Important: Access to the Thomas Hill Standpipe is controlled by the Bangor Water District. In the event access to the Standpipe is canceled the scheduled tour will be the regular public Derry tour.
