Pleasance is an abandoned settlement and point of interest in Red Dead Redemption 2 in the Scarlett Meadows region of the Lemoyne territory.


The town of Pleasance was founded in August 1883 and was abandoned a month later following a brutal massacre that claimed the lives of ten residents. By 1899 it has become a ghost town surrounded by an enduring mystery.

Pleasance Massacre

On September 17th 1883 Pleasance was the site of a grisly massacre the claimed the lives of ten locals. The victims were discovered either shot or stabbed in a violent manner.

The killer, or killers as the case may be, was never identified deepening the mystery surrounding the ill-fated town. The motive for the murders also remains unknown but graffiti is seen scrawled on many of the buildings.

It's possible that the murderer was known as The Plague. On the barn north-west in the town is written: "STAY OUT PLAGUE". This is not the only inscription on the buildings. The easternmost house of the town also has graffiti scrawled across it. The first inscription reads "UNCLEAN SINNERS" on the wall partially obscured by a creeping vine. On the door is scribbled "ILL WITH SINS."


  • On a table in the abandoned schoolhouse can be found Otis Miller and the Boy from New York. On a desk is the Cigarette Card for Fountain Pen - 1884 - Lewis Waterman. On the mantle is Ginseng Elixir.
  • To the northwest of the schoolhouse is a barn. On the northeast side of the barn in the bushes in a crate that has the Cigarette Card for Lillian Powell.
  • A cabin can be found west of the shack. On the mantle within is the Cigarette Card for Senator Thaddeus Waxman.
  • A dreamcatcher can be found far to the northeast, across the border near where the roads converge.
  • A large dead Snake can be found in a tree south of here.

Known graves

It's possible that the killings were the reason the town was abandoned. However it's unlikely that the whole town was murdered, as someone did put up gravestones. These gravestones are written as follows:
