It's also interesting to not that, while I do not know a lot of the
details about the switchovers or the exact times when King owned what

there is a rather decent sized clock of land between Broadway and Bangor
High School, and he did not want the land to be sold and developed.

I found that to be one of the most interesting facts about the sale
