The Ahern/Morris regions became the main welcome area for new residents. Residents would arrive at telehub pads on the ground in Ahern and beaconed forward by a boardwalk leading into Morris, with various informational kiosks along the way to help new residents become familiar with Second Life.
Ahern also had several recreational builds, including a nice lake for boating and canoeing as well as a shooting gallery. The shooting gallery was originally located just west of the telehub pads, but was later moved down near the lake.
