The Truth about the name of your hometown

The stories reported on this blog about how a town acquired its name is like writing about American history. It depends upon who is writing it. We try to base our information on historical facts, personal accounts and sometimes legend. From this information, we try to come up with a reasonable conclusion. This site is a work in progress and your opinions and additional information are encouraged. They could also change our opinion. Our goal is to exchange information and have fun! If you contact Joe at, he can tell you 4 or 5 different versions behind his hometown.

Keep up those comments!
