Scary, creepy or amusing U.S. place names associated with Halloween
Happy Halloween

Unlike our main unusual, bizarre or humorous names of towns in the U.S. page, U.S. towns with AUTOMOTIVE-related names, U.S. place names pivotal to the TV series LOST, town names associated with VALENTINE'S DAY or romance and U.S. towns with CHRISTMAS or holiday season names, this page focuses exclusively on U.S. place names that are directly or indirectly associated with Halloween. A few of these Halloween towns no longer exist, while others have dwindled to just a few buildings, but they're all actual places, whose scary names have come to be linked with Halloween.

Since many of these scary towns are smaller communities that might be less familiar to the reader, we also include the counties where many of these Halloween-themed place names are located.

Each of these cities, towns and place names has been officially recognized as a populated place by the U.S. government.

PUNCTUATION NOTE: The U.S. government does not use possessive apostrophes in U.S. place names. Even when proper punctuation would call for the use of a possessive apostrophe in a city or town name, they are not used. When the name of local businesses, or street names incorporate the town's name, that specific usage may utilize an apostrophe.

We are very gratified to learn that teachers are utilizing our various place name pages to successfully motivate their geography students. Educators incorporating these webpages in their lesson plans report their students find geography more fun, and entertaining!
