Most oddly named town in each US state.
By - TooHigh2Die420
Truth or Consequences, NM
Literally what I expected to see and was disappointed it was Pie Town.
Agreed that said I do love pie town. There’s like 3 buildings in the town and one makes pies. Fantastic.
My parents met, dated, and got married close to that area. My great grandmother and grandfather lived in pie town before they passed. Neat little place.
Haha that’s bananas. They must have been two of all of 12 people in the town lmao.
I grew up in Santa Fe. New Mexico’s a funky little corner of the earth.
Yeah, pretty much! I have more family in taos. You're right, it is a funky little corner :D
So 1/3 of the town makes pies. That’s quite a percentage.
It is called Pie Town after all
3/3 eat pies
Toy box killer is why I know about that place. Gotta call from there a while back, freaked me out
It was renamed as part of a promotion for a game show.
Train Of Consequences
Boring, Oregon: "The most exciting place to live."
I live in Portland (Boring is on the outskirts of Portland) and I can assure you that Boring is named accurately.
Can confirm, im also a portlander, and my sister lives in boring
Twinned with Dull Perthshire, Scotland. They are also linked with Bland Shire, Australia.
*Gravity Falls intensifies*
West Virginia also has a town named “Big Ugly” and I only know this because one time a saw a headline in the newspaper that said “big ugly woman arrested” and I was like wtf? So I read it and it was just saying the town she was from. Lmao. Like “Florida man” and that type of shit. Kinda funny though.
I like Big Ugly too and it’s actually a place. Not sure Booger Hole is.
Have you met my friend, Biggus Dickus?
*barely holds back laughter*
What's so funny... about... Biggus... Dickus?
He has a wife, you know?
I live in Michigan and "Free Soil" it's probably one of the most normal names of cities in this state.
Right, I think Climax, Colon, Hell, Vulcan, Bad Axe, Slapneck, Christmas or Jugville all suit better than Free Soil.
Paradise, Dowogiac, Charlotte, Gogebic, Ontonogon, Escanaba, Mackinac and Mackinaw right beside each other ... I mean the weird bastardizations of native American and French pronunciations and transliterated names of cities, townships, villages, etc are too numerous to mention.
It's a good place to live though.
I've lived in too many of the places you just named.
I'm sorry if I brought up any bad memories but I'm glad if I brought up good ones.
A mix of both I guess, I just think it is wild that I have lived in three of the places you mentioned as being oddly named.
>Mackinac and Mackinaw
Aren't these pronounced the same, too?
You forgot Gay
sometimes you need to go through colon to get to climax
Hell and Nirvana.
It's one of my favorites in this list. That name came from the heart.
I love camping near Free Soil
Zzyzx, CA has my vote.
Also Touchet, WA, because it’s apparently pronounced “tushie”.
Nah, Humptulips takes it for WA
With honorable mention for Dosewallips (DOH-see-Wall-ips).
There is also Dickshooter, Idaho
Kentucky also has Monkey's Eyebrow, which is arguably way better of a candidate for this map than Pig.
Honorable mention: Possum Trot
"Beaverlick" is an unincorporated community in Boone County, Kentucky. Understandably didn't make the cut because it's not a town, but still
Satan's Kingdom made the cut and it's an unincorporated village ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯
I'm not far from Edmonson County. Calling Pig a town is a real stretch. Is Pig really that weird in a state that has Rabbit Hash, Kingdom Come, Hell for Certain, Lickskillet, Sugartit, Possum Trot, Black Bottom, Tyewhoppety, Cutshin, Vortex, and Climax?
Yeah I passed through there last year on my way to Mammoth Cave NP. From the map it seemed like it was just the area around an intersection with a smattering of houses and an old timey diner (which we ate lunch in and was delicious).
That's pretty much it. If you blink you'll miss it.
Not arguably better, it’s in another league.
I think intercourse PA is better then coupon
Or Bird In Hand. And I'm saying this as someone who grew up in Frogtown, PA.
Do you even have frogs over there?
Runner-up: Blue Ball.
Having grown up in Lancaster County PA, the first "dirty joke" I learned as a kid, half a century ago: "You have to go through Blue Ball and Intercourse before you get to Paradise"
What about Blue Ball, PA? Or Climax? Or Jugtown? Or any of the Beavers, Beaver, Big Beaver, Beaver Falls?
The worst *has* to be North Versailles, pronounced “Ver-sales.”
Yeah I'm pretty sure Coupon doesn't make the top ten in PA.
Jersey Shore, PA is the strangest one to me.
Story goes that it was settled by people from New Jersey and the other town across the river didn’t much care for them and took to calling it the “jersey” shore. It might predate the “Jersey Shore” resort area as a term, idk for sure though.
Don't forget Virginville!
Or Gaylord, MI
Pronounced Gaylerd so not as odd as you think.
Oh that’s much better
>Satan's Kingdom, MA
nani the fuck
Come on down to Massachusettes, we've got:
* Witches, maybe
* Big snakes
* Big water snakes
* Bridge ghosts
* Hitchiker ghosts
* Forest ghosts
* Moose ghosts
* Dogtown -- no dogs, just ghosts
* Entire state built on an Indian burial ground
* Satan's Kingdom
* Mysterious holes
* Stairs to nowhere
* Tiny people that will steal your shoes and push you off a cliff
* Dover demons
* Dover ghosts
* Dover people
* Season 2 of the American Horror Story
* Ruins with witches and/or ghosts
* A gate to hell, maybe
* Human sacrifice rocks
* Person of color Flash
* Gay lion
Oh god not Derek plesse
Derek’s a myth
Would you bet your life on that?
The Spirit of America
Massachusetts is the best state
Satan's Kingdom isn't an actual town's name here in MA though. It's an unincorporated village within the town of Northfield. We've got some actually pretty weird town names tho.. Orange & Florida, MA to name a couple.
I mean I’m from Sandwich MA
I'd consider living there just for shits, except fuck snow.
Knob Lick, MO exists & they chose Frankenstein?
So many Knobs to choose from, too!
Beep. Boop. I'm a robot.
Here's a copy of

False. Minnesota’s most oddly named town is most certainly Norwood Young America
My vote is on Gary New Duluth
What about Nowthen?
I feel like this map is just like one of those Facebook posts that is obviously wrong to entice people to comment/engage on how wrong it is.
This map is made by someone who googled a clickbait town name list.
Toad Suck is not a town. No one even lives there. It’s a place where there used to be a ferry across the Arkansas River, about 6 miles west of Conway. There’s a bridge there now.
A better choice for Arkansas would be Y City out in the mountains near Oklahoma, about 50 miles south of Fort Smith.
Source: I grew up just north of Conway and was on the last ride of the ferry about 50 years ago.
I like Smackover.
I would have gone with Bald Knob
6 miles is the length of approximately 42239.9 'Wooden Rice Paddle Versatile Serving Spoons' laid lengthwise.
6 miles is 9.66 km
Yes, we have a town called "Fifty-Six"
[Google Map Location of Fifty-Six](https://www.google.com/maps/place/Fifty-Six,+ARfirstname.lastname@example.org,-92.2456601,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x87d1f43498157f1d:0xd2628062330f815d!8m2!3d35.9545022!4d-92.2285864)
Pennsylvania has an Eighty-Four
I’d actually nominate Hell, Michigan
And Unalaska, Alaska
Wait but Volcano makes perfect sense 😂
So does Jackpot, Nevada
Waterproof, LA not so much
Maybe they’re permanently in drought? 😂
Yeah my sister went on a mission trip there to rebuild a school. . . that had flooded.
It’s literally right next to the entrance to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park which contains the most active volcano in the US
Pretty sure Hawai’i has a town called Hell too lol.
They probably picked it because it’s one of the only Hawaiian town names that are in English instead of Hawaiian.
Kentucky fried pig
Damn would it be cool to say you come from Satan's Kingdom
Beaver, UT would like a word with you.
Yeah. Nibley is just named after the Nibley family. I’d have gone with Mexican Hat or Eggnog if I was selecting odd Utah town names.
It's in the Fillmore/Beaver region.
Yeah Mantua and Toole are there, and that's not even how you say them!
Hell and Christmas Michigan?
And in Minnesota: Ball Club, Blue Earth, Clam Falls, Clappers, Climax, Embarrass, Good Thunder,Little Canada, Luck, Motley, Mound, Ottertail, Nimrod, Pillager, Sleepy Eye, Staples, Twig, Winner.
Don't forget Savage and Gaylord
Blue Earth is so normalized to me that I was surprised you included it, but I guess it is weird if you think about it
Not using Spread Eagle for Wisconsin is a god damn tragedy.
I'd say Cheeseville WI is a top contender too
The map says oddly named, not most appropriate.
Ever been to Bugscuffle, TN?
Or Nowhere, TN?
Honestly, there's plenty of much weirder-named places than "Smartt" (which was probably a name, amusingly oxymoronic it may be).
Seems highly subjective
I wanna visit Ding Dong Texas HBU?
Everything's bigger in Texas...
In Norway we say everything is bigger in the US
Basically Texas is the US of the US.
Texas? Pass. That place *sucks*.
And they didn't use Peculiar for the oddest city in Misssouri?
Yeehaw Junction, FL
Two Egg, FL.
Sugar Tit, SC...
oh, yes, i live in Satan's Kingdom
It's got to be Dinosaur, CO.
They have absolutely fantastic street names such as:
* Stegosaurus Fwy
* Brachiosaurus Bypass
* Diplodicus Dr
* Ceratosaurus Cir
* Tyrannosaurus St
* Triceratops Terrace (I mean, come on, it doesn't get better than that!)
Kfc after discovering Chicken, Alaska
Chicken was settled by gold miners in the late 19th century. In 1902 the local post office was established, requiring a community name. Due to the prevalence of ptarmigan in the area, that name was suggested as the official name for the new community. However, the spelling could not be agreed on, and "Chicken" was used to avoid embarrassment.
Nah there are loads more weird ones in the UK amd nothing beats Fingringhoe
What about old times names for red light districts (nsfw): https://imgur.com/gallery/lcd38ML
There’s a place called Mary’s Igloo in Alaska
Truth or Consequences, NM is better than Pie Town
I always thought Sandwich, Illinois was a funny one.
Been spending most our lives livin in a Catfish Paradise
Don’t forget Burnt Corn, Alabama
Yeah idk about Handsome Eddy NY, I can think of 4 other places with stranger names.
Went to Volcano National Park today. The town Volcano is right by the entrance to the park/base of the Kiluea Volcano so it's not that strangely named of a town given the area it's in.
After driving around basically the entire big island today and seeing all the crazy historical Hawaiian town names, Wimea, Waikoloa, Hilo, Honalo, Kona my pick is the totally out of place Kurtistown.
Tuckahoe and Onancock beat Fries, VA anyday
Not a town, but there’s a lake in South Carolina called Alcohol and Drug Abuse Lake
there is actually a town in georgia called “Hopeulikit”, pronounced as “hope you like it”. definitely thought that woulda won
I mean even Cumming is better than Flippen
Listen, coupon is the least oddly named town. We have Blue Ball, Intercourse, Kunkletown, Paradise, and many others.
How did Chicken Bristle make it over Effingham.
It's spelled Zzyzx
Mormon Bar is named after a river bar, not a saloon.
Why not Rough and Ready?
There is also Weed, but that is named after someone.
I agree with you. Rough and Ready is probably the most unusual name in California for a town.
Saw an old timer fixing his barbed wire fence by the highway in Egnar which has population less than 100 at the time. I pulled over and asked what the name meant and he gave this huge smile like he had been waiting his whole life to answer that question.
“It’s ‘Range’ spelled backwards!”
The fact that Cut N Shoot, Texas didn't make this map makes me question the whole list...
Nah, Washington should def be Walla Walla
Sounds like every second town name in Australia
Concrete is also not the sexiest of names.
I find Seattle to be the funnier name
There's a small town called No Name, Colorado. Way better choice than Parachute. (Side note: Parachute does have some pretty good dispensaries)
There is a town near Atlanta GA that’s between two larger towns, and so they named it *Between*.
Been spending most our lives living in a Catfish Paradise
Thought “Truth or Consequences” would be the New Mexico pick but Pie Town is equally odd.
Of course there’s a town called Waterproof, LA!
Truth or Consequences should have been for New Mexico
I’d say naming a town ‘Jackpot’ in Nevada isn’t ‘oddly named’ at all. I’m sure they could’ve found something better
I live in missouri and am from a town called "cowgill" and think that is much weirder then "Frankenstein"
Yes, but we have a town named Dildo in Canada. And its right down the road from Spread Eagle and Come By Chance.
Michigan: it's free real state
PS: Little Canada sounds chill
bald head sounds great
I always thought Little Compton was named funnier than Woonsocket. There's actually a few more weirdly named towns here in RI
Also I’m pretty sure Woonsocket is Native American. If we’re going by that there’s a lot weirder Native American named towns in the US lol
lol right like Little Compton is funny since it's so wealthy and rural and so opposite the stereotype of the other Compton... meanwhile Woonsocket over here just being a Native American name minding its damn business
Truth or Consequences, NM is better than Pie Town imo
Not even Truth or Consequences New Mexico
I don’t know what half of these mean
Satan's Kingdom, Toad Suck and Booger Hole... do I even need words to describe them?
I live near one of these lmao
Who is from Pig? Rand Paul or Mitch McConnell?!
The town Boring was one of the inspirations for Gravity Falls
Pig Fries Whynot Coward
Ya yes chili, home of the chili street dance, check it out next year if you like corn and hey and lots of beer.

If wonder if Boring is a fun town to visit
Yup, this is definitely America
Would love to see an Australian Version
I call dibs on Skiddy Frankenstein for my new band name!
Santa Claus Indiana Is actually named after what used to be Santa Claus Land but is now holiday world So that so That particular name is attributed to a corporate town kind of that sprang up because of something not that already existed before the amusement Park did
I like Okay, OK and jackpot, NV. Best states to have these cities
Uh how could they pick "Okay" for Oklahoma when IXL exists? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IXL,_Oklahoma
>IXL (or I.X.L.) is an historical freedmen's town in Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, United States. While founded perhaps as early as 1900, it was only incorporated in 2001 and had an estimated population of 59 in 2007. The 2010 census listed the population at 51. The source of IXL's unusual name is disputed.
