In Canada the small town of Kitsault lies frozen in time, completely abandoned by it's once 1,200 strong community. Kitsault has been left a ghost town for 30 years now and despite being brought in 2004 it still remains in the same state that it was left in.

Kitsault was once a village that was entirely dependant on mining. Once the mining company was shut down the town quickly followed and its inhabitants left, leaving behind nice houses, shops a library and more. Books still line library bookshelves and shopping carts still remain stacked and organised inside the shopping centre... all that is missing is the people that used to live there.
