Road Trip! The Weirdest Town Name in CA?

My son and I enjoy taking road trips to small, desolate ghost towns. Well, I just added one to our list.

Someone spent some serious time and found the weirdest town name in all 50 states. For California, they gave that crown to Mormon Bar. Huh? It’s in Mariposa County and is a ghost town. It seems no one lives there because they don’t participate in the census. Weird, indeed!

Mormon Bar is a California Historical Landmark, and seems like a fun road trip destination.
