probably never existed... Most likely someone at Google or wherever Google gets info from having a little joke... Kinda like carving your name on a bench or a tree trunk...

On state printed NC road maps, there is a town name in the mountains that doesn't really exist... It was a guy's name that worked on the maps at some point and threw it in there... I don't think it has ever been taken out and continues to be printed today...

Can't remember then name off the top of my head, but can look it up when I get my hands on a map...
