Ticonderoga, NY. Small town feel, locals gather at certain businesses to chat and pass away the time, beat up cars (not very old, but not very new), country feel and lifestyle.

Wolfeboro, NH is definitely has a historic vintage feel to it as the oldest summer resort town in the US according to the town's claim to fame.

I live around a lot of Amish and Menonites and they all have cell phones out much of the time now....

Still, also having a place in New England I'd say there are a lot of towns that fit that description.

Shelburne Falls, Ma for one example....
A bigger town with the same original feel is Northampton, MA - but lots of hill towns (in the hills west of northampton, ma) are EXACTLY as they were back then.
Here is a drone pic I took of Northampton:

Chattauqua NY. It's a non automobile based vacation place out of 100 years ago. The vacation is self improvement related. Music, astronomy, Astro physics you name it. Not sure how the town is as the institute is fenced in and bicycle or walking is how you get around.

Another place in Oklahoma comes to mind. Talihina. Driving into Oklahoma set your clocks back two decades in the state. But talihina is back woods compared to the rest of Oklahoma. This is where time passed over. It's got lots of water, fertlile land and four seasons. Perfect for preppers or going off grid too.

Any town with a population less than about 300 is like that.

Any small town anywhere.

Here in my state [Maine] most [the majority] of townships have a population of fewer than 300 people.
