You might not be surprised that there is town named Climax. People name places some strange things. You might be surprised there are several of them.

Georgia:

Climax is a city in Decatur County, Georgia, United States. The town was named Climax because it is located at the highest point of the railroad betweenSavannah, Georgia and the Chattahoochee River. The population was 297 at the 2000 census.

Minnesota:

The town briefly made national news in 2004 when school superintendent Shirley Moger refused to allow students to wear shirts bearing the town’s centennial celebration motto, “Climax – More than just a feeling.”, which may be a reference to orgasm.The motto for the town’s centennial was picked following a contest.

Pennsylvania:

Climax, Pennsylvania is a small town outside of New Bethlehem and Clarion, Pennsylvania. Known for its mining industry, namely Gypsum. Its zip code is 16242 and it is located in Clarion County.

And in Michigan we find out Climax has a climax; it’s located at Main and Maple.

Almost everything in Climax is located on the main cross streets, Main and Maple. The school, cemetery and Harvester restaurant all lie along South Main St. North Main boasts the relatively new music studio (housed in what used to be an independent hardware store), a convenience store, the village library, park, phone company and post office, the bank, Peace Community Church, a few homes, and the town newspaper: the Climax Crescent. Maple is almost entirely residential, with the exception of the United Methodist Church and Sinclair’s Market.
