Everyone should go to Hell, Michigan
Settled in 1838 by George Reeves, he was asked what he thought the town should be named. “I don’t care,” Reeves responded. “You can name it ‘Hell’ if you want.” Hell started out as a grist mill and general store on the banks of what is now Hell Creek. Reeves’ habit of paying the local farmers with home-distilled whiskey led many farmers‘ wives to comment about their bartering husbands, “He’s gone to Hell again.” The name stuck and Hell became an official town in 1841. Until 2014, Hell held the Guinness World Record for having the largest hearse parade in the world.
