This town is a cesspool of idiocy. A small town with nothing there. Those who accidentally find this place should leave as soon as possible. Sadly, there's not much there to stick around for.

There's almost no reason to go to this town. It's essentially a few churches, a giant cemetery, a burned down skating alley, a school, and a grocery store. Not much else there.
