That's one of the great town names - Pie Town, New Mexico.

Makes you want to move there.

You still can! According to Wikipedia it is north of Gila National Forest in western New Mexico and has 186 residents as of the last census. It is at 7,700 or so feet and bills itself the "Friendliest Little Town in America."

Amazing set of photographs...I've been to Lincoln, D.C., and Mt Horab, and they don't look like that now...
