Municipal border of SCP-XXXX, from Maryland Highway 808.

Special Containment Procedures: Through the efforts of embedded agents in the Maryland Department of Transportation, Foundation front company Stars & Stripes Construction Partners has been contracted to work on an extension of the US 70/MD 27 bypass. When completed (estimated early 2021), the bypass will redirect traffic around SCP-XXXX, thereby minimizing civilian exposure.

In the interim, SCP-XXXX is inhabited by a population of D-class personnel, research staff, and task force security officers. All assigned personnel are to maintain Veil Protocol 23-12, the appearance of an ordinary community. All D-class have been reoriented to their assigned roles via Class-GF identity composition treatment.1 More information on Protocol 23-12 may be accessed in Addendum XXXX.1 below.

Any civilians attempting to contact former residents of SCP-XXXX are to be detained by Mobile Task Force Epsilon-6 ("Village Idiots") and administered transient-retrograde amnestics (at the discretion of the Security Chief). Mobile Task Force Iota-10 ("Damn Feds") will dispatch a tracking team to monitor the treated civilians and take further action as necessary.


Mount Airy, MD, USA.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the town of Mount Airy, Maryland. The town itself is considered non-anomalous; however, at an uncertain point after 30 October 2019, the entire population within the boundaries of the town disappeared via uncertain means.2 This event was not registered by any Foundation sites or outposts— it was first discovered by external sources during the following week.

The current timeline of events involving SCP-XXXX is as follows:

  • 02-11-2019: A Frederick County sheriff's deputy attempts to contact a local law enforcement official in Mount Airy, and becomes concerned when he does not receive a response.
  • 04-11-2019: The deputy's report reaches Foundation agents who are working on an unrelated project within the Maryland State Police. The agents discreetly notify Site-26 of the discovery.
  • 05-11-2019: Site-26 Containment Director Gaddis orders the formation of a small investigative team to perform a preliminary survey of the affected area. This team is led by Captain Leon Pool, the Site-26 Assistant Director of Task Force Operations.
  • 06-11-2019: Initial drone observation indicates that the affected area is safe for human entry. The investigative team enters the area to conduct a survey. During this time, they detain and amnesticize five civilians who were attempting to visit friends and family within the town.
  • 07-11-2019: Containment Director Gaddis requests that a team from MTF ϵ-6 conduct a thorough exploration of the affected area.
  • 08-11-2019: The initial survey team drafts containment procedures, which are approved by Director Gaddis the same day.
  • 10-11-2019: MTF ϵ-6 deploys a squadron from Site-81, led by Colonel Janet Rinse. See Exploration Log below.
  • 14-11-2019: The Classification Committee reviews containment procedures and officially assigns the anomaly item number SCP-XXXX, with the addition of the secondary class Eparch.3 The Committee also recommends revisions to the containment protocols.
  • 16-11-2019: Current containment procedures enacted.
