The garbage dump is a landmark in Three Rivers, reports Urban Dictionary.

Bored rednecks call it home; our 'Urban Dictionary Defines Your Town' series goes to St. Joseph County's Three Rivers. The top description describes the residents and recreation:

Three Rivers


Small Southwest Michigan town where JimBob, BillyJoe, BillyJean, and Maxwell call home. If you live on Roberts Mountain, then you may have a similar name. (Roberts Mountain being the garbage dump on Roberts road)


I was in Three Rivers last week visiting cuzin JimBob. We went fishing and then had a nice view of Three Rivers up top on Roberts mountain. The methane smell sure makes ya know you is alive.

The next post promised shopping but no entertainment:

Three Rivers


Boring, little town in the mitten state where there is plenty of fast food, meijer, walmart and nothing to do.

Don't these people read? Clearly, Lastman and HarmonyB are not fans of actual books as Lowry's is a mainstay of downtown Three Rivers and worth the trip from just about anywhere in Southwest Michigan. The restored Riviera Theatre is also a great entertainment destination. What else is there to see and do besides "Roberts mountain?" Tell us in the comments below.
