Why would they place them with that cult?

Creepiest town I ever went to was some place near Beckley, West Virginia (which isn't so great either). It was full of those run down old row houses that I've seen a lot of in West Virginia. Some of the buildings looked like businesses but the only one that appeared open had "XXX" on the sign. Every vehicle was an old pick up truck. Everybody had a mullet, except for some neo nazis I saw at a convenience store. And yes, they were neo nazis. It was a father and his kids with shaved heads, white power t shirts, and a truck with a nazi flag. The whole town was horrible.

Georgia has plenty of creepy little towns, but none as bad as that s far as I can remember.
What was the name of that town near Beckley?

That is true. Though not all of them will self identify as such.

I live and grew up in the hills of northern Appalachia about an hour north of NYC I've been called a hillbilly before me and my friends live smack in the middle of the woods and the kids that live in town consider us outside kids Hillbillies/Rednecks cuz we live in the hills and mountains we spend most of our time in the woods and we live a different lifestyle than the richer people but those rich kids from the suburbs always refer to us as hillfolk so it's all matter of perspective

Richfield Springs, New York was the most hillbilly town in the part of upstate New York I grew up in (Mohawk Valley). Much of rural upstate NY is somewhat hillbillyish but I remember Richfield Springs as being borderline Deliverance though I haven't been there for 30 years.

NAH! New York is nothing but cities from end to end don't you know?

I grew up in the hills of the southern tier. I remember feeling very out of place when I visited Rochester. People were staring at my sister and I like we were filthy. Somebody in a game store in Henrietta even asked me where I was from based on my accent... he thought I was Midwestern.

Scariest place I've ever run across is Laurens, SC.....the home of the "World's Only Klan Museum". It even has a souvenir counter where you can by "memorabilia"!!:

Frank Beacham's Journal: A Visit to South Carolina's Redneck Shop and Ku Klux Klan Museum

I was working at a job in Greenville, SC at the time, and knew then and there that this was not the state where I belonged.

"youse" is very common in Butte, Montana which was settled by Irish Miners. My coworkers (at a mine near Butte) use the term all the time-very surprising the first time I heard it-no Philly/Jersey accent here!
