A city where time stands still?

FictionFilter: I was going to use a fictional city, but decided to opt for realism. What is the most white bread, vanilla, time-stands-still city in the United States? I'm thinking 1958 in 2012. I know that is 'literally' impossible, but as close as you can come.

I'm thinking the city is probably very conservative, white as snow, lots of churches, they rarely see a tattoo or hear hip-hop music. Population is 50,000 and up.
Real experiences with said community would be helpful as so many cities have been stereotyped and they're not actually what we perceive them to be.
Does this place exist? If not, I may go the fictional city route, but I'd rather not.
As always, thanks in advance!
