Florida circus freak town

Okay, this is obscure like whoa.

There was this episode of the X-Files where Mulder and Scully travel to a small town (in Florida, I think, but I'm not sure) to investigate some incredibly bizarre phenomenon as usual. But this town was populated almost exclusively with retired circus freaks.  You know, guys hammering nails into their forehead, knife throwers, fire breathers, dudes that eat cars and trash and live insects and whatnot.  That jigsaw dude, this guy with almost his entire body covered in a tattoo of a jigsaw puzzle, played a part, I think at one point he was the world's most tattooed person or something like that.  Anyway I heard / read somewhere that that small town really exists, actually completely populated with circus freaks.

Is that true?
