Baumton was the Paragon City's first marketplace, where tradesman and farmers went to sell their wares. After the Rikti Invasion, people started calling it Boomtown, because the massive devastation reminded them of a bomb crater.

Boomtown is a Hazard zone in CoH. A hero needs to be at least level 10 to enter. It was originally called Baumton.
