Random Weirdest Small Towns In The United States

    Nameless, TN ?C That's Really Its Name

    Nameless, TN ?C That's Really Its Name

    [ranking: 16]
    Of the many unusual names of American cities, including Ugly, TX, Peculiar, MO, and Accident, MD, Nameless, TN, is one of the best. Legend has it that a long time ago when its residents applied for a post office, they left the name on the application blank, so the US Post Office Department issued applications back with "Nameless" stamped on the form. Sounds like somebody at the Post Office was trolling.

    Colma, CA ?C Where Two Million People Have Been Laid To Rest

    Colma, CA ?C Where Two Million People Have Been Laid To Rest

    [ranking: 4]
    In Colma's two square miles, there are 17 cemeteries. The San Mateo County necropolis has been dubbed the "City of Souls" because it hosts an estimated two million dead people and only 1,200 live ones. Back in the days of William Randolph Hearst and Wyatt Earp??who are actually buried there??they transported bodies from San Francisco to Colma to make room.

    Centralia, PA ?C On Fire Since The '60s

    Centralia, PA ?C On Fire Since The '60s

    [ranking: 1]
    In 1981, there were 1,000 people living in Centralia, PA. By 2010, there were less than a dozen. What happened? Well, there's been a coal mine fire burning beneath the town since 1962. Sinkholes, toxic smoke, gas??the highway itself is hot to the touch. Residents apparently couldn't deal. Although it's been on fire for decades, experts believe that it may burn for another 250 years.
    If, for some bizarre reason, this sounds like a place where you'd like to live, you can't. In 1992, the state of Pennsylvania seized all the property in the town and condemned it. They allowed the then-current residents to stay, but once they're gone, that'll be the end of Centralia.

    Roswell, NM ?C Aliens-R-Us

    Roswell, NM ?C Aliens-R-Us

    [ranking: 17]
    It's been called the home of "the world's most famous, most exhaustively investigated, and most thoroughly debunked UFO claim." In 1947, residents of Roswell, NM, saw what appeared to be a UFO crash. The military said it was a conventional weather balloon, but many still believe.
    The town has since become synonymous with UFOs and extraterrestrial conspiracy theories. The good news? Its tourist industry is thriving.

    Tangier, VA ?C It's Got A Unique Sound

    Tangier, VA ?C It's Got A Unique Sound

    [ranking: 13]
    Tangier, VA, is located on Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay. Not only is it one of the oldest cities in America, but it's also one of the most unique sounding. The people on Tangier have a unique accent that linguists say is unlike any other place in the US. That's because the dialect of the locals in Tangier is a long-forgotten mix of an "American" accent with a mix of old British twang.
    Some suspect the Founding Fathers and early settlers of America probably spoke similarly to the way the residents of Tangier speak now. 

    Gibsonton, FL ?C Where Carnies Go To Chill

    Gibsonton, FL ?C Where Carnies Go To Chill

    [ranking: 8]
    Of the 14,234 residents of Gibsonton, FL, a sizable portion of them are carnival workers and sideshow human attractions looking to spend the off-season in a warm, welcoming climate. Residents affectionately call their home "Gibtown." There was even once a local police chief who was a dwarf and a fire chief who was an eight-foot-tall giant.

A post on Medium in May 2016 attempted to tackle a seemingly unanswerable question: what's the weirdest town in America? To do this, Lyman Stone used 20 different variables, including what percentage of each city's population was foreign-born, married, working, in the armed forces, etc. He then compared that data to national averages. What he found was that San Jose, CA, is the most bizarre town in the US. But though it may be demographically weird, San Jose doesn't hold a candle to these weird small towns in the United States.

Truth be told, there are thousands of weird US towns that didn't make this list, some of which include Hollywood, Portland, and Providence. The following, however, are notorious for their stark oddity. If you've ever wanted to travel America in search of the silliest, saddest, and most unhinged of all the states, consider this a travel guide to the weirdest small towns in America.
