There is a large field of unique limestone formations (ironshore) in this small town. Over a period of many years, coral, shells, and other skeletons of sea life were solidified by limestone and salt deposits into this formidable landscape. Some say this is what Hell would look like. Some say if you throw a pebble into the formations, you can hear it rattling all the way down to Hell.
This is the gift shop. Nearby is the post office where you can send "postcards from Hell."
