“Helltown”
Premieres Sunday, October 29 at 9 PM ET/PT on Destination America
 
          Why did the federal government completely evacuate the small Rockwell-esque town of Boston, Ohio, in 1974? Theories have swirled for decades about what might have spurred the exodus including massive, mutation-causing chemical spills; a plague of paranormal activity; and the town being overrun by a satanic cult.
 
          It’s because of these nefarious speculations that Boston is now referred to as “Helltown.” Now, half a century later, this special investigates theories about the real reasons for the government’s sudden seizure of the land.
