The Gravestone District expanded with immigrants and crime was out of hand for a long time in Port Shallow. The mayor at the time ordered Gravestone to force its residents away and tear down the district. Today, very little of old Gravestone can still be seen, and the district is now very small, but still home to Port Shallow's poorest of people. Most of the district was renamed New Hope, and now houses middle class housing and apartments. The city later broke up, turning the districts of Granmont and Bravewood into incorporated cities within Ericson coUNTY.
