Buxton in popular culture

Buxton in The Shawshank Redemption

In the film The Shawshank Redemption (based on the novella Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption by Maine native Stephen King), Buxton is the site of the oak tree and rock wall where Red goes after being released from prison to retrieve a message from his friend Andy Dufresne, who escaped from prison a few months earlier. The actual location of the tree and rock wall is in Lucas, Ohio.

Buxton briefly cameos in Purge Feed footage in the 2013 film The Purge.
