Weird Country Names

DING DONG TEXAS

The fact that Ding Dong is in central Texas Bell County is a funny coincidence. The county was named for Governor Peter Bell, and the town for resident and businessman Zulis Bell and his nephew Bert (no relation to the governor). The Bells ran a general store and hired a local painter named C.C. Hoover to make a sign for their business. Hoover supposedly illustrated the sign with two bells inscribed with the Bells names, and then wrote Ding Dong coming out the bottom of the bells. As a rural community grew around the area, the words stuck as a name for the place.
