Bars, Mormons, Gold, Etc.

What: Unique Scoop dishes up 21 Oddly Named Places, including Mormon Bar, California.

Quote: "It seems like a bit of an oxymoron, Mormons and bars that is. But that’s not quite the case here as the town’s history began when a settlement of Mormons moved to the area as part of the California Gold Rush."

Reaction: They also flagged Mexican Hat, Utah; Satan's Kingdom, Connecticut; and Toad Suck, Arkansas. And you ain't been nowhere til' you been to Hell for Certain, Kentucky.


  1. I've never been to any of the other places, but every family road trip to Southern NM included a stop at the Dairy Queen in Truth or Consequences...yum!

  2. I would love to have met the person who named a town "hell for certain"
    I can just see two crotchedy old settlers...
    "So....what ya wann call this darned ptach of weeds?"
