Aesthetics Wiki

New England Gothic is an aesthetic that revolves around the prescence of evil and sinister occurances in the New England region of the United States. It draws upon colonial folklore, imagery, and values, often relating to Protestatism or other clasically colonial religions. It often features supernatural creatures such as witches, demons, the devil, and other religious evils.

Like other Regional Gothic aesthetics, it rose in popularity during mid 2010, with added aspects of liminal space and specifically formatted text posts, but its origin lies in Dark Romantic literature of the 18th and 19th century.
