A Poster of Tom Selleck Has Welcomed People to a Maine Town for Almost 3 Decades
It isn't breaking news to say there's a lot of strange stuff roadside throughout the State of Maine. If you can dream it, it might be outside somebody's house catching rain or holding up their mailbox.
Most of the time, those peculiar roadside eye-catchers have a limited lifespan before they become legend. Unless of course, you're Tom Selleck.
A poster of Tom Selleck, to be exact. Because that roadside attraction has been welcoming people along Route 104 to Fairfield, Maine, for almost 30 years now.
Shared with us by Lindsay Davis, there he is in all his 1980s glory. The handsome, mustached actor who famously played Magnum P.I. to worldwide fame.
And while he's had plenty of leading roles in Hollywood, the poster of Tom Selleck inside this shed has been holding down this supporting effort longer than daytime soap opera actors.
According to WABI, the poster inside the shed isn't the original that was tossed up there almost three decades ago. Time takes a toll on us all, including posterized Tom Selleck and the original had to be replaced to preserve the actor's looks and the integrity of the landmark.
And yes, it's definitely a landmark.
Some towns have clocktowers, churches, and monuments as landmarks. Fairfield, Maine, has a poster of Tom Selleck inside of a shed.
But the legend of the poster of Tom Selleck could be coming to an end. The property on Middle Road where the Tom Selleck shed exists was put on sale earlier in August, listed by Kerry Lee Hall at Cates Real Estate. It's now under contract, and if the deal goes through, we'll all have to patiently wait to find out the fate of posterized Tom Selleck.
