Does anybody know of towns that have no stores, gas stations and stop lights?

Check the entire state of New Mexico. Lots of grass and very few buildings.

None of those here. We do have a yield sign where the town's two paved roads meet but no stop sign. There isn't even a town-owned building.

I think Felt OK has none of these. Ill ask a friend who lived there but I am *almost* certain about this.
Clayton (NM) has the honor of having the only stoplight in our whole county

Just off the top of my head, around the town I lived in while in Maine there are Perham, Wade, Crouseville, Woodland Center, Jemtland, Nashville Plantation, Frenchville (The one on Maine Route 227 not the one on Route 1), Deadmans Corner, Chapman, Parkhurst, Easton Center, Westfield, and a dozen others within a 30 mile radius. None of these have anything like a gas station, store or stop light. Some have a post office though .

Gann Valley, Buffalo County, South Dakota
Olivet, Hutchinson County, South Dakota

Both are county seats.

Try Coupon, PA. Several small towns in Western PA meet this criteria.

We have several nearby. I ride my scooter in southern IN all the time. I go through Bath which has no light but a railroad track running through the middle. It does have a bank. We joke that when you go about three miles down this country road there is "New Bath", of course no light and about eight houses. We joke that it is the suburb of the first town. You wonder how these little areas build up with only a few houses together....
