Map of Derry

Derry, Maine is a fictional town in the Stephen King multiverse and the setting of several novels and stories. It first appeared in the short story "The Bird and the Album" and was expanded on in It, Insomnia, and 11/22/63. The town's exact location differs slightly from story to story but it's always in the Bangor vicinity. In the 1983 novel Pet Sematary, Ludlow is located south of Bangor and north of Derry. King has acknowledged that Derry is actually his portrayal of Bangor. A map on King's official website places Derry in the vicinity of Etna (west of Bangor).
