Shack town is located at the main entrance of town at the South Gate. It’s actually two large neighborhoods just off the main road, East and West Shack Town. It gets it’s name due to the fact most of the neighborhood consists of small shacks, temporary buildings and cheaply constructed buildings on the verge of collapse. It’s one of the first places people fresh off the boat go to for semi-permanent housing before staking a claim.
It’s a den of crime and the dirt roads are rarely visited by city guards. Some folks have settled in for permanent residency due to a lack of funds for staking a claim in town and wait for the announcement that outside claims are now safe to make.
