Here in West Michigan we have a city called Wyoming, and down by Kalamazoo there's Texas Township.

Of course my favorite is Indiana University in Indiana PA.

Wonder if Oregon MO has anything to do with the start of the Oregon Trail?

There's also Brooklyn Heights, Cairo, Denver, Newark, and Nevada. Much like Versailles, they pronounce Nevada in their own special way.

I'm not sure how Cairo, MO, is pronounced, though your version is how Cairo, IL, is pronounced. Nevada, MO, is pronounced Nee-Vay-Duh.

There's an Oregon, Wisconsin. My college best friend's roommate was from Oregon, Wisconsin and he always had to add the state to stop people from being confused.

I'll try to remember and take a photo of "Park Drive," an exit off of I-74.

I used to live just down the road from Oregon, Ohio (pronounced Ore'-ee-gun).
