Unusual City names

14 posts in this topic


Ever heard of Killen, AL, Unaklaska, AK or how about Gassville, AR? There's plenty more unusual city names on this bizzar webpage I found.

Guru's list of Unusual city names.

Enjoy.

:)

There are some funny ones on there. :thumbsup:

I can't believe Chevy Chase, Maryland didn't make the list...

Whats so odd about the name Battle Creek? or Fruitport?

The problem with a lot of these unusual names is that they are not really places. These places should be an incorporated city/village, or a township, or, at the very least, a postal location. A bunch on Michigan's list are none of those, including the following.

Cumber

Dick

Ivanhoe

Linkville

Nirvana

Olive Center

Peatville

Pine Stump Junction

Pinnebog

Popple

Raisin Center

Redman

Slapneck

Wic-A-Te-Wah

I think I'll name the area south of Coopersville (the landfill) "Trash Heaven" and add that to the list.

Actually I recall there being a "West Olive" I believe on the road from Byron Center to Holland. I used to travel that route every weekend. It's a pretty small village, something you could sneeze and miss.. probably not even incorporated. Considering there is a West Olive, I wouldn't be surprised if there's an Olive Center around there, too.

Kinda like Hopkinsburg. A lot of people know about Hopkins, although it's a pretty small village.. yet just east of Hopkins there's an even smaller area (I think it's about 3 houses and that's it) called Hopkinsburg.

West Olive is near the lakeshore, between Grand Haven and Holland.

Maybe it was this so-called Olive Center that was along the road then, I'm pretty sure there was something olive-related along the road. Or maybe I'm just confusing things.

I've been to both fudgeing, Austria and Rottenegg, Austria... you can imagine how many street signs get stolen.

That would be F U C K I N G, Austria

It's not a swear word if it's a town name.
