Van Lowe Taxidermy was owned by Shelley van Lowe who inherited it from her parents when they died. She eventually sold it to the Bysshe Company when she left Lewisburg after her brother Calvin's disappearance. The store has a secret basement lab which is accessible by pressing the laundry day date on the wall calendar next to the laundry. This was built by the Bysshe Company for Calvin van Lowe on a weekend when his sister Shelley was out of town.
Van Lowe Taxidermy has three floors and a basement and is a combination of taxidermy store and personal home.
The entrance to the building leads to the main taxidermy store. The walls are lined with the merchandise - mounted heads of various Appalachian fauna, mounted antlers and claws, and a large stuffed bear standing in the front window. The store counter sits next to a shelf of taxidermy equipment for the casual hobbyist. A noise complaint lies on the counter next to a terminal. Behind a counter is a red button which can be pressed. There is a display case located against the northern wall which contains a strange bone if the player character has not yet completed Lying Lowe. A doorway to the east leads to a set of stairs which connect to the main living areas. Next to the store counter is a door which leads to a storage area and a set of stairs leading down to the basement. The storage area contains lockers and merchandise which has yet to be assembled for sale. There is a locked storage closet (Picklock 1) which can be unlocked by picking the lock or using the taxidermy storage key which can be found on top of a bureau on the second floor near the staircase.
The landing area after reaching this floor contains a television and a couch. It also has a small cabinet holding coffee cups, teacups and a teapot. A door to the west leads to a kitchen. Shelley’s bedroom is connected to the kitchen, through a door which is next to another flight of stairs leading up. In her bedroom is an ensuite, a broken bed frame and a desk with the Life with Calvin holotape on it. There are three cat heads mounted above Shelley’s desk.
The third floor contains Calvin’s bedroom and study. There is an upright piano and and a couch in the main landing. Calvin’s bedroom is beside the upright piano. Inside his bedroom is a large bed, a dresser with a bowler hat sitting on it, and a vanity with a golf bag leaning against it. His room has an ensuite and inside the ensuite is a set of mounted antlers with six rolls of toilet paper hanging from them.
Calvin’s study is east of the top of the stairs. A terminal sits on a desk next to a note from RobCo customer support. A robot parts model sits on the desk beside the terminal and four empty milk bottles can be found in the wastebasket. There is a map and multiple boards hung on the walls with notes detailing strange occurrences and possible cryptid sightings tacked to them.
A radrat has taken up residence in the basement which is a combined laundry and workshop area that contains a chemistry station. On the wall next to the chemistry station is a mounted wolf head. The strange bone can be inserted in its mouth to reveal a secret safe containing Calvin's security code. On the wall next to the washer and dryer in the corner of the room is a calendar. Pressing the day marked 'Laundry Day' will cause the wall to shift and reveal the entrance to Calvin’s secret laboratory. A laser grid guards the entrance and can only be bypassed with a spare operative keycard.
Calvin’s lab contains an assaultron assembly platform with a terminal attached to it. There is a large work area filled with spare parts from both robots and various animals. A tinker's workbench sits at the far end of the lab, next to a chalkboard with schematics for an imposter sheepsquatch drawn on it.
