Why would a town have a zip code if it really isn't a town at all? There are many in Missouri that would like to solve this mystery as there is a zip code assigned to a town with nobody there.
I decided to take the red pill ala The Matrix and go down the rabbit hole to see what's going on with Lead Hill, Missouri.
First, I can confirm the Reddit contributor is correct. Zip Codes shows 72643 is assigned to Lead Hill, Missouri and there is zero population there. Curious.
Zip Codes shows the Lead Hill in Missouri with no population is in Taney County. Curiously, if you go to the Lead Hill (township) in Taney County street view on Google Maps, you get this.
So strange. Is there a M. Night Shyamalan "The Village" type of thing going on here? That theory is better than any other I've heard so far about the mysterious Lead Hill, Missouri...the town with a zip code and a population of none.
