Smallest City in USA (In Two Counties)

Claim to Fame of being "The Smallest City in USA Situated in Two Counties," according to a sign at the south end of town.

[Jeff Everman, 09/19/2018]

Lehr has only a dozen streets, so perhaps other, smaller "cities" straddle county lines somewhere, too small to hire a sign painter.
