BDN article notes Bangor’s most expensive house has ties to UMaine men’s hockey
A Bangor Daily News article about Bangor’s most expensive house noted that it was the original home of the University of Maine men’s hockey team. The house at 900 State St., also known as the Dr. William C. Peters House, was most recently home to Green Gem Holistic Healing Oasis, according to the article. Designed in arts and crafts style by architect Fred L. Savage, the building was a private residence for more than 100 years. A hockey rink was built in the backyard in the 1950s by the residents at the time, and it was used by hockey players from UMaine before the university had an official team, as well as players from Bangor’s amateur team, the BDN reported. The rink was later demolished. The house’s garden and landscaped grounds were designed by the Olmsted Brothers, sons of landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed part of the UMaine campus, the article states.
