Nestled in the mountains on the stateline between Tennessee and Kentucky, Sugar Hollow can be described as quaint, quiet and homey. It's the type of town you tell your friends to visit when they just need a day off, or even a week off, and they tellt heir friends the same thing, and so on. It's the town you can walk down the sidewalk and not have to worry about shootings or yelling, but more so people hanging out their window to say hello. This town, people stop in the middle of the road just to ask how you're Grandmother Abby has been and whether your papa Jack needs a helping hand out on the farm. There's music in the air, everywhere you turn.
But what most people won't tell you is the dark past that's hidden beneath the concrete the town was built on. They won't tell you that the residents are haunted by the man that had been hung for killing his wife over a hundred years ago. They won't tell you that because of it, once every month, they lock their doors, sprinkle salt on their window sill and hope, pray that the ghosts that built this musical town don't enter.
Sugar Hollow was built by a man who believed music could cure even the darkest of souls. Abel Hollow hoped to reach others and bring them into the music world by building an academy just for that. Sugar Hollow Academy is situated on the tallest hill overlooking the small town, it's gothic towers reaching formidably to the sky, looming over the citizens. Abel Hollow's wife, Reba Hollow, found joy in teaching some of the classes alongside her husband. They brought in several teachers from France, England and more in hopes of broadening their students' minds and offering them the best education.
Everything was great.
And then Reba turned up dead after rumors got around to her husband that she had been sleeping around on him with one of the other professors. They found Abel leaning over her body, soaked in her blood with rage in his eyes. The townspeople tied and gagged him then strung him up to the tree hanging tree and without a fair trial, they hung him.
Before this, he told the townspeople he would be back, that even the Devil himself couldn't keep him from coming back and seeking revenge on the entire town. He cursed the town, and everyone in it.
