It was hard enough learning to spell Mississippi (remember the ‘crooked letter’ schoolhouse rhyme?) But these U.S. cities take the lead in having the longest names.
While Chancellorsville could easily be sounded out, you have to be a real spelling bee champion if you plan on moving to Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg, Massachusetts. Home to the Nipmuc Indian tribe, residents of this historic, scenic town enjoy boat racing, fishing and the typical water activities. What was once Indian territory (Chaubunagungamaugg means “fishing place at the boundary”), this town is now well-known for having one of the longest city names in the U.S.
Are you a wordsmith? Does the thought of playing Scrabble make you want to jump for joy? You should consider moving to one of these cities, they’re a mouthful!
