Sounds like a great location for a horror movie to be filmed.

Many years ago in NC there were three towns right next to each other named
Leaksville, Draper and Spray.
I thought those were the coolest names in the world when I was a kid. Imagine saying that you lived in Spray. And what a 10 year old mind couldn't make out of Leaksville!
Leaksville, Draper and Spray.
Sounds like a bad law firm or the pitching rotation for a single A ball club.
Alas, the towns consolidated and are now called Eden.
Leaksville, Draper, and Spray. RIP.

Second one I always loved in NC is Lake Junaluska, where the Methodists are headquartered I think.
Because of their meetings there there are always signs pointing to
The Junaluska Assembly.
Methodists?
Sounds to me like where the Federation and the Klingons meet the Romulans.

Chilliwack, BC comes to mind. Although not a weird name, it is in-apt in that it portrays a very cold climate, despite the fact that, due to its proximity (65 miles inland) from the left/wet coast of Canada, it has very mild winters, even by northern US, let alone Canadian standards.

I didn't think much of it when I lived there, but when I tell people (who aren't familiar with the area) that I'm from "Hackensack" they usually chuckle.

Shartlesville, PA.
