Fans of King’s work will be able to visit the archive by appointment.

King has become one of Maine’s most celebrated figures, with one city councillor telling Rolling Stone that King and his family have donated millions of dollars to a variety of causes in the community.

King and his wife, Tabitha, have not lived in the Bangor house recently, as they have been on the road, in Florida, or in Oxford County, Maine. For a ranking of the top 10 Stephen King movies, check out the video below:
