Who is the Richest Person in Maine?
Stephen King? Roxanne Quimby?
Nope. The richest person in Maine is Leon Gorman, the chairman of the board of L.L. Bean.
The real estate brokerage, Movoto, released its map of the wealthiest Americans by state on Friday. While Mr. Gorman has big bucks ($860 million of them to be precise), he ranks 48th on the list of the wealthiest in each state. He is richer than Delaware's Robert Gore ($830 million) and Alaska's Robert Gillam ($700 million.)
For the record, horror master Stephen King is second on the Maine list with an estimated net worth of $400 million and Burt's Bees founder Roxanne Quimby is third at $350 million, according to the website, CelebrityNetWorth.com.
The richest person in America? Well, that would be Bill Gates, whose net worth is estimated at $80 billion.
