1. Centralia, Pennsylvania: a rural town that has been on fire for over 50 years.
In 1962, local firefighters did not properly extinguish a landfill fire that then extended into a coal mine. As a result, the population of the town has dwindled over the years from over 1,000 residents to only eight. There is estimated to be enough coal in the mines to keep the fire going for another 250 years. Much like Hawkins, Centralia is basically positioned directly over hell itself.
2. Fouke, Arkansas: a secluded town that’s home to the legendary Boggy Creek Monster.
The Boggy Creek Monster, also known as the Fouke Monster, is said to have been killing livestock and terrorizing residents since the early 1970s. The town was even the basis for the 1972 movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. Bigfoot is not friendly, sorry.
