Description Edit

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.
