History

The (formerly) grand staircase inside the Gilmore Motel.

The Gilmore Motel was named after Seymour Gilmore, a successful Bohemian businessmen whose family came to Malton in 1913. His family managed the motel in their name for many years, but eventually sold it out to Malton millionaire Thornton Mallett. Gilmore continued to manage the motel in his family's name.

In 1999, Seymour Gilmore, the last of his family, was found dead in his own motel, shot by one of his own frenzied guests, a fugitive from the law, who killed a room service waiter and the unhappy owner before taking his own life a few blocks away. The infamous Gilmore Motel was closed down, and Thornton Mallett did little, if anything, to reopen it or find a new manager. The place soon fell into ruin, and it became a popular suicide location for a number of years. In 2003, it was discovered an underground terrorist group was using it as a hideout. The government seized the property, and after a botched raid on the building the Gilmore Motel was forgotten again.

The structure was the site of a holdout by Survivors trying to escape the great Zombie Outbreak in 2005. During this time, a number of Survivors mysteriously committed suicide there, only adding another length of infamies to the motel's history.

Although some Survivors, driven to suicide by depression or otherwise, have optionally chosen to die here, many others complained that they had no control over their actions, and killed themselves in their sleep by throwing themselves from the same window on the top floor. Others reported trying to explore the motel further and suddenly finding themselves outside the building with no explanation.

To this day, the Gilmore Motel has an aura of mystery surrounding it, and continues to carry a bad name with the citizens of East Boundwood.
