A former town in a remote part of northwestern Oregon, long since abandoned. The site of Idiotville lies on the eastern edge of the Tillamook State Forest, on the route of what is now Oregon Route 6, but no trace of the town remains. Of course, this raises a rather metaphysical question about whether a town can be said to exist in any sense if you know the name, the place, and it's on Google Maps, but all traces of it and its people are gone. In any case, Idiotville is (or was) chiefly remarkable for being approximately miles and miles from anywhere. That's actually where the name comes from. There's a small stream nearby, named Idiot Creek (after the town), and around halfway up it was a logging camp that was used as part of the recovery from the Tillamook Burn, a series of massive forest fires that swept the area between 1933 and 1951. The name derives from this camp being so far out into the middle of nowhere that only an idiot would work there.
There is a second question to be raised, too. Namely, why are a series of facts about an obscure town in Oregon worth knowing? It seems as if a very strange confluence of circumstances would be required for you to need to know the precise history of Idiotville. But forewarned is forearmed, and if ever a man is holding a knife to your throat and demanding answers about why Idiotville is called that, you'll have me to thank. You might well ask, 'but what if I never need to use this information, and it just takes up more space in my brain and the nodegel?'.
