I found an out-of-the-way place while tracking a semi-lost package.
Look up Kirk, Colorado. What story could you write about that location?

Infected or mutated grain is stored in grain elevator, with grain being sold to some major bakery company. Maybe this infected grain gets mixed with other grain at bakery company, mutating it? People eat the bread, pastries, etc. made at bakery, go crazy ala 28 days later? Beef infected and company tries covering it up, but too late as thousands of pounds have been sold and eaten. Again, 28 days later? Who's who in the govt. knows the shtf is coming within several years and nothing can stop it, so they start buying land thru intermediaries, not trusting the governments own hideaways. (ala we're from the govt. and here to help you) Maybe a dozen or so preppers are looking for a place and have bought land, homes, etc. there a few months before it hits the fan. There's an British movie where MOST plant life (includes grass, grain, bushes, etc.) starts dying off. When animals eat this dead stuff, they die. Can't remember the title though.
Update: one website shows a population of 58? There are 18 campsites of different sizes/types in the surrounding area, including at least one in Kansas. Maybe the town is nothing more than a cover for a company such as the Umbrella Corporation aka Resident Evil? Or maybe a secret govt. lab either for germ research which goes wrong (ala The Stand) or various alien spaceships and bodies that have been collected over decades and are studied. Maybe an alien or two escapes? They may/may not look human.

Another update/thought: what if the townspeople AREN'T regular people. Maybe they're retired govt. spies, assassins, etc. that are there to protect whatever the govt. is doing there. How about what happens to assassins who decide to retire, you know, people like John Wick? Or it's a training camp where aliens learn to physically change from their alien life form to become human and learn human ways before going out into the world to eventually dominate thru different countries politics? Like The Invaders tv show. This way there's no massive war with the planet being damaged.
