Must see for Stephen King's Pet Cemetery Fans!

It took awhile but we were able to find the spot where Gage was resurrected in Pet Cemetery! Made the visit worthwhile all in itself for me!

Beautifully maintained cemetery with very old and new stones. I was told by the locals that some of Pet Sematary was filmed here.

This is more than a cemetery, it's a park. A wonderful place to go for a walk without having to worry about traffic. It's also a great history lesson.

I spent most summers of my childhood visiting Bangor, as my Mother's siblings lived there. Over the years there were not many places I did not visit. This was an interesting place to see the names of some of the first families of Bangor.

The park-like setting is a wonderful place for photographers to visit when in Bangor. There are several ponds where ducks, geese, herons, egrets, muskrats and other wildlife can be seen. They are used to people so you really don't even need a long lens. There are flowers and bridges and beautiful gravestones for those not into wildlife photography. It is... More

This place is absolutely worth a visit. My husband and I stopped by here on our last day in Maine. We spent most of our time on the coast and decided to go here on a whim to occupy extra time before our flight out of Bangor. I love cemeteries and this is hands down the coolest, most beautiful and... More

This is the most beautiful cemetery I have ever seen! The peaceful feeling overcomes you as soon as you enter this magical place. You could spend easily a whole day here walking around. There are beautiful ponds throughout the cemetery. It is amazing to see the tombstones on hills, and wondering how hard that must have been to bury someone.... More
