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.

About Dale

A native of South Carolina, Dale spent 23 years in Atlanta as a litigation paralegal, small business owner, banker and business credit manager before making the life-changing move to Bangor, Maine in August 1999.

 
"I did not even own a winter coat! My friends thought I had lost my mind. But, I have come to love the slower lifestyle and the year-round recreational options this beautiful state has to offer."
 
Dale holds a B.A. in Political Science from Furman University in Greenville, SC and a Litigation Certificate from the Institute for Paralegal Studies in Philadelphia. She has done graduate work in business at both Georgia State University and the University of Maine. She is a strong believer in community involvement and has served on the boards of Literacy Volunteers of Bangor and the Bangor Y. An active member of All Souls Congregational Church, Dale has served as chairperson of the Coordinating Committee, Nominating Committee, Annual Bazaar, Stewardship Committee and as Senior Deacon.

Additionally, she handles communications, leads management, relocation, agent development and whatever else the day brings at the seven offices of Realty of Maine.
