Camden’s Hollow was the quaintest of New England towns: Victorian homes next to saltboxes, white picket fences, tree-lined streets. And, of course, the ghosts. New England’s best kept secret, the legends of ghosts that showed up from people who lived there, even if they had died hundreds of miles away. It was like something would anchor a person’s soul to this place, tethering it forever. A curse? or did the citizens really love it that much that they would always long to return?
The town’s gradual descent into an abandoned town is not abnormal in nature. Declining job opportunities, an unfortunate economic hit and a particularly roaring fire that turned one half of the town to cinders, slowly the population - the living population at least - dwindled down to nothing. There’s a small community occupying the area around the church, devout religious folk. Friendly enough, the church itself is now just as much a rest stop for curious urban explorers. Though, naturally, there are some rumours that the churchgoers aren’t really telling the truth about the whole ‘being alive’ thing.
When a group of people are brought to the mysterious town in search of a stranger’s deceased mother, they find that perhaps there’s something more to these ghost sightings than they thought- but the pay is good, so they don’t complain.
