Baneberry is a very small town in Jefferson County with a population of around 500 and a total area of 1.8 square miles. It got its name from the poisonous baneberry bushes that grew in abundance around the current site of the town. The berries are so toxic that they have been known to cause cardiac arrest and even death. Thankfully, the town is much nicer than the plant it's named after!
