Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

A recent Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode that featured Barnroof Point, Colorado reminded us there are plenty of places in the state unknown to most natives, let alone visitors. And we found more evidence in this list of the weirdest, quirkiest town names in Colorado. From it, we picked our favorites, including a couple perfect for Halloween. They're supplemented by maps (some interactive, some not) of their locations and photos included to illustrate their highly unusual handles. Count down the top ten below. Number 10: Hygiene

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
