Kenduskeag Stream is a 36.2-mile (58.3 km)[1] 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 it reaches the city of Bangor. Passing through downtown Bangor, the stream drops 100 feet (30 m) in 2 miles (3 km), flowing into the Penobscot between the two downtown bridges across the larger river.[2]


Kenduskeag Stream plays an important role in the fictional town of Derry, Maine, in the works of Stephen King.

Charlie Howard died at Kenduskeag Stream in 1984 due to homophobics.
