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.

“We really enjoyed Jim’s down-to-earth attitude. This was only a camp, but Jim appreciated how nice it was and all the heart and soul we had put into it over the years.

Jim’s attitude showed that he really wanted to help us. He related well to us. He knew the area well and knew all the activities the area offered. We had tried selling it through another agency, but they really did not have much going on. We have now referred our neighbor to Jim for him to sell their camp.
