Here's a town I passed through today for work. Its about an hour from my house.

Goldvein is an unincorporated hamlet in Fauquier County, Virginia, running along US Route 17, and located approximately 15 miles northwest of Fredericksburg, Virginia and 8 miles southeast of Warrenton, Virginia at latitude 38.45 & longitude -77.66. It has a population of approximately 200. It is home to Monroe Park, which houses a museum of Virginia gold mining. At one time, there were up to 18 active gold mines in the Goldvein area, although none of them are still active commercially.

I grew up 8 or 10 miles from this place.
They don't even list a pop. I describe it as having about 100 P.O. boxes in the post office, not all are rented, I'm sure.

My wife is from Sinks Grove WV. It's about 20min from Fairlee were they have the state fair. We are going up this weekend for that. And i'm going to also bike the Greenbriar River Trail. I did all 77miles of it last summer, and it was one of the best times I ever had. There is not much in Union, but I love going to visit her family.

I spent most of my life living in AZ but I've had family up in Minnesota for years and I spent all of this summer in this town called Bemidji.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bemidji,_Minnesota

My family's house is closer to Puposky MN, A tiny little town, It used to be a logging town in the 1900s and even had a railroad running through it as late as the 30s, but now has less then 20 people in it.
