Kenduskeag Stream is a 36.2-mile-long (58.3 km) stream in the U.S. state of Maine. It is a tributary of the Penobscot River. The stream rises at the outlet of Garland Pond in the town of Garland, and flows southeast through Corinth, Kenduskeag, and Glenburn, before entering the city of Bangor. Passing through downtown Bangor, the stream drops 100 feet (30 m) in 2 miles (3 km), reaching the Penobscot between the two downtown bridges across the larger river.
Kenduskeag Stream plays an important role in the fictional town of Derry, Maine, in the works of Stephen King.
Famous quotes containing the word stream:
“Ask me no more: thy fate and mine are sealed;
I strove against the stream and all in vain;
Let the great river take me to the main.
No more, dear love, for at a touch I yield;
Ask me no more.”
—Alfred Tennyson (18091892)
