Hello. I've come to ask a question...

What is the most least populated town? I've been trying to look for this...

Well, there's plenty of towns with fewer than 10 residents...don't have names off the top of my head but SW Texas and the Dakotas come to mind as states with abandoned towns with just a couple of legal residents left.
You can search citydata and select "towns with 1000 or fewer residents" for each state.

I'm not sure about the "least populated town" because there are many that are totally abandoned. I do know that the smallest county in America is Loving County Texas though, it has less than 100 people.

Yes! Loving County, TX - I read an article about that recently but couldn't remember the area, thanks. I think there was like six legal residents left, in an abandoned Mission town. I know there's parts of the northern Great Plains states that are full of abandoned, and near-abandoned farm & ranching communities.

Default some towns have no people

A few towns in VT have no people. Glastonbury comes to mind- completely abandoned after a few people disappeared from there. Also, areas in Northern Maine are still broken down into plantations. So you can find a town in Maine called "T19 R22", literally township 19, range 22, and only 3 people live there with no government. Pretty cool.

Hamilton County, NY has only 4 people per square mile across the whole county. Hard to belive its in NY.

Lightbulb Vernon

Vernon is a small town in the heart of Los Angeles County with fewer than 200 resident, its unbelievable considering Vernon is in SoCal, but of course most of vernon are industrial area with very little residential zones.

Rosman, NC is pretty small. I lived there over 20 years ago and it had less than 500 residents at that time. I just recently checked the area out again, and it still has less than 500 residents.

Florida, MS
Glenwood Plantation, ME
Lost Springs, Wyoming
Tenny, MN
White Rock, SD

Is there any particular reason you are asking?

A town in your nose perhaps, nosepicker? Surely the items populating they must be all gone now due to the goldrush your hands joined
