The Shawshank Redemption
The Haunted Bissman Building & Family

The Bissman Building's involvement with the production of The Shawshank Redemption grew to be something we never thought it would have been. From producing "period-style" billboards to making the beer bottles you see on set in the still below, the family had a major involvement with producers and set designers. The Bissman Building was also the home of The Portland Daily Bugle and The Brewer Hotel.


The Bissman Building & The Bissman Family's involvement with the production of the movie is something that can only be felt, seen, and described on one of our Tours! Visit the "I Want To..." tab to arrange a tour of the Portland Daily Bugle, Brewer Hotel, and the building that is commonly known as The Haunted Bissman Building!
