Created at the Gate House Museum, this is an odd experimental film made in PowerPoint and based on old pictures of Sykesville taken in the 1980s. It includes most of the houses and buildings. The town was quite dead at the time, and since few of the pictures include people, it's a sort of eerie look at Sykesville as a ghost town.

See how many people you can find. See how many dogs.
