Homes for Sale in Historic Central Maine
Bangor was settled in the 1760s and became known as the “lumber capital of the world” during the 19th century. Most of Boston and New York City is built from lumber transported from the Bangor port. By 1900, an average of 2000 vessels called at Bangor annually. The great fire of 1911, sparked by embers from a hayshed, destroyed much of downtown, but did not stop the citizens of Bangor from re-building. Most of the present downtown is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the “Great Fire Historic District,” while the portion that survived the fire is the 'West Market Square Historic District.”
Bangor is the hometown of Hannibal Hamlin, Abraham Lincoln’s first Vice-President and a strong opponent of slavery. William Cohen, former U.S. Senator and United States Secretary of Defense under President Bill Clinton is a Bangor native. Singer/songwriter Howie Day and comedian Bob Marley were born in Bangor. Bangor’s most notable residents are writers Stephen and Tabitha King. Current U.S. Senator Susan Collins also lives in Bangor.
Population density in Bangor is low at 901 people per square mile. A typical Bangor resident is 36 years old, educated, travels 15 minutes to work, lives in a household of two, and has a family income of $42,047.

“Working with Charlie went very well. She did a great job for us. This was a VA loan which was a lot to go through, but Charlie was good at recognizing what was reasonable and what was not. She also worked very well with the other Realtor®,who was a bit challenging. Of course, Charlie sold our house in 45 days, so what’s not to like about that! I would highly recommend Charlie to anyone.” Oct 2015

Charlie gets a 100% grade! She was absolutely fantastic. Could not have asked for a better agent. She is professional and a woman of integrity. I will be putting a very nice review of her on Zillow and would not hesitate recommending her to anyone. October 2014
