Alabama has its fair share of interesting town names. Of course, we would. A lot of cultures have passed through our state. The French, Spanish, and English all have left their mark. So did the different Indian nations. They left names we use today, some with our own Alabama pronunciations. There are also town names that make no sense at first glance until you learn their backstory. In this Alabama Short Stories podcast episode, we will learn about some of our state’s more unique town names and why townspeople chose those names.
