Jerusalem's Lot, also known as 'Salem's Lot, is a fictional town featured in novels and short stories written by famed horror author Stephen King. It first appeared as the provincial setting of the 1975 novel Salem's Lot. It also appeared in the short stories Jerusalem's Lot and "One for the Road". The town was showcased in the television miniseries adaptation of Salem's Lot, as well as the 2004 remake of Salem's Lot starring Rob Lowe. Jerusalem's Lot was also a major setting in season two of the Hulu television series Castle Rock.
Founded in Maine territory in 1765, its name is derived from a colonist named Charles Belknap Tanner, who owned a pig named Jerusalem, who was known to gravitate towards a wood lot. The story of Tanner's pig circulated enough that people began calling the town Jerusalem's Lot, which later became shortened to 'Salem's Lot. Since its inception, the area surrounding Jerusalem's Lot has been a focal point for dark metaphysical occurrences, relating to ancient and powerful beings.
