Kingsport


Kingsport
   Fictitious city in Massachusetts invented by HPL. Kingsport first appeared in “The Terrible Old Man” (1920) but was not then based upon any specific site; only in “The Festival” (1923) was it identified with Marblehead, a living museum of colonialism, which HPL visited in December 1922. It is cited briefly in “The Silver Key” (1926), used extensively in “The Strange High House in the Mist” (1926), and mentioned glancingly in The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath (1926–27), The Case of Charles Dexter Ward (1927), “The Shadow over Innsmouth” (1931), “Through the Gates of the Silver Key” (1932–33), and “The Thing on the Doorstep” (1933). A Kingsport Head (presumably a headland near the town) is cited in At the Mountains of Madness (1931) and “The Shadow over Innsmouth.”
