Ogden Marsh, Pierce County, Iowa is a fictional town, and the main setting in the 2010 horror film The Crazies, but is not the main location of the 1973 version. It's nicknamed the "friendliest place on Earth," which is ironic as this is the first place to be infected by Trixie, a biological weapon which turned its inhabitants into mindless murderers. After the town's citizens get infected, the National Guard starts a quarantine, and those that have still not been infected are put into trucks, and sent away. In one of the final shots, we can see a nuclear bomb being detonated in Ogden Marsh, killing the virus.
