The Wicked Witch From ‘The Wizard of Oz’ Had A Home In Maine
"The Wizard of Oz" from 1939 is a movie most people on Planet Earth have seen. Did you know that the wicked witch of the west from Oz lived in Maine?
Actress Margaret Hamilton (1911-1985) had a summer home on Cape Island near Southport Island, according to the Portland Monthly. Hamilton's son told the magazine his mother was doing a show in Brunswick when she heard the Coast Guard was selling lighthouses, so she bought one on an island that looks across Cape Harbor.
Here's a picture of Margaret Hamilton's magnificent island. We wonder if there's any coincidence that the house is ruby red.
There's no place like home.
