Valleyville is a fictional town in Virginia. Valleyville is featured in author Kipp Teague's "Little-Known" Attractions of Lynchburg and Central Virginia website. It is one of dozens of odd but somehow plausible features presented by Teague. Other "attractions" are so plausible that there continue to be reports of people searching for the Lost Gorilla Train which purportedly derailed and released its passengers to the wilds "somewhere south of Lynchburg near Evington in the 1950s." The website is very popular with parody fans.
Allegedly secreted away in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, the town of "Valleyville" is shrouded in mystery. One web site refers to Valleyville as "Central Virginia's own twist on the legendary 'Area 51,'" but the site also offers speculation that the town may in fact be "some form of international (or possibly internal) political detainment center." Whether or not Valleyville actually exists is a subject of debate, and indeed, the only evidence of the town would appear to be a fuzzy aerial photo and a confusing road map offered on the site.
A top secret detention center for holding political prisoners and other undesirables who can't simply be executed. Has more than a few OmniSenters, a couple of ex-Defilers, some political prisoners left over from Archbishop Meres' reign, and a few dangerous criminals that can't be kept in a regular prison for a variety of reasons. All 'citizens' are tracked via locator cuffs -- bracelet-like devices that are worn at all times. The cuffs can also send a paralyzing shock into the wearer if need be. Situated in a part-natural, part-created valley south of Model Square, in a natural 'dead zone' when it comes to mana and a 'dark territory' when it comes to electromagnetic transmissions. Looks, to all outward appearances, like an ordinary town. Underneath the town, however, are cells, one for every citizen, in case the town needs to enter 'lockdown.'

The map is BS. Here is exactly where the map came from:
They photochopped the town names and route numbers to fit their purpose. The only name not transposed is "Crabt.. Falls" which is clearly visible on the undoctored map. I'm sure this is all just to throw everyone off the trail!
