Top 5 Funniest-Named Towns Our Technicians Worked In

#1 – Pigeon, Michigan (5 WO’s)

Pigeon, Michigan

This little town boasts a population just under 2,000 and can be found 3 hours north of Detroit. Even though it’s a small town in Michigan, our technicians have done 10 different work orders there with a focus on AV, telecom, and low-voltage cabling.

#2 – What Cheer, Iowa (4 WO’s)

What Cheer was once a booming coal mining town in the late 1800s and, at its height, had a population just under 4,000. Today, the town’s population is just under 700. In the 10 years Field Nation has been at work, there have been 7 different work orders in What Cheer, including some for CCTV and VOIP.

This bustling little town–formerly Hot Springs, New Mexico–got its name after Ralph Edwards, a 1950s radio host of the show “Truth or Consequences” challenged any town in the U.S. to change its name for the show’s.

The town, which made most of its money off its tourism industry, took his challenge in hopes that it would boost visitorship.

This town has just over 300 residents–called “Accidentals”–and is one of the earliest settlements in Maryland.
