    The Richest Town in Every State

    Your hometown carries a lot of weight. Just naming the town or suburb where you grew up immediately tells others something about you. Maybe it’s a suburban community renowned for the good school district and club soccer teams; perhaps it’s a bustling urban neighborhood filled with trendy bars and restaurants. Either way, the character of your hometown helps new acquaintances gain an initial understanding of who you are.

    This principle is especially true for the 50 places on this list. Each town holds the distinction of being the richest location in its state. Stacker used the U.S. Census Bureau FactFinder tool to pull crucial information about each town, including the unemployment rate and median household income. Each town or Census Designated Place (neighborhoods created for the purpose of surveying residents) on this list had the highest median income in its state. When you say you’re from one of these places, it immediately conjures up images of grand mansions, luxury cars and ritzy restaurants. Read on to see which town in your home state took the title of the richest location and which place had the highest median income in the country. Who knows—your hometown might even be on this list.
