Centralia, PA | 2012
The least populated municipality in Pennsylvania, with an estimated population of between 5-11 today, depending on the different places I’ve looked. I wonder what sort of people still live there, refusing to move from a town literally condemned and on fire (there’s been a coal fire burning under it since 1962, smoke emanates from the many cracks in the old, abandoned, and heavily graffitied stretch of highway 61 there). It no longer has a zip code. Apparently, “state and local officials reached an agreement with the seven remaining residents on October 29, 2013, allowing them to live out their lives there, after which the rights to their houses will be taken through eminent domain.”
Yes, I’d like to meet whatever tough, stubborn bastard still calls Centralia home.
