As someone who is from a small town in Indiana, I am proud of where I come from. Boonville, Indiana is a great place to raise a family and to call home. I don't care what anyone says. Indiana is full of small towns. Most of these little towns in the state are quite charming. There's so much hometown pride in these small towns. However, most would agree that not all small towns are great places. That being said, one publication just found the ten worst small towns in Indiana.

Recently, we explored the Indiana town that was named the "most unusual" in the state, as well as three Indiana towns that were named some of the best small towns in the country. Now, were are going to take a look at the small towns that were named the worst in Indiana.

A website called RoadSnacks did a little research and found the ten worst small towns in Indiana. Their findings were determined based on several factors: unemployment rates, crime rates, housing costs, high school dropouts, adjusted median income, and population density. Before we share the list of towns, remember, I am just the messenger here. If you live in one of these small towns in Indiana, don't blame me for this list.

There you have it. The worst small town in Indiana is Country Squire Lakes. After looking at Country Squire Lakes online, I don't think that it looks as bad as the data makes it out to be. I mean it's full of lakes, a beach, fishing areas, a marina, and fun events. Honestly, it sounds like my kind of place. According to data and science though, apparently, it's not as nice as it sounds. I suppose you can make your own call on whether or not these small towns are as bad as the data says they are.

KEEP READING: 40 Real Indiana Towns with Quirky, Weird, and Funny Names

Outside the major cities, the Hoosier state is full of tiny little towns you've probably passed through on your way to one of those cities. Most of them are likely 100 to 150 years old, or older, and have been around far longer than the large metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Evansville. Typically, they were started by early settlers who found their way to the state and decided to make it home. Eventually, others would join them, and a community was formed. Over time, as the surrounding areas grew, most of them were folded into those areas and governed by the nearest city or county's governing body officially making them "unincorporated," meaning they did not have their own formally organized municipal government.

A scroll through Wikipedia's long list of unincorporated communities in Indiana shows several of them have names that by today's standards would be considered weird, quirky, or just downright right funny. These are my 40 favorities.
