Community Named After a Ceramic Frog

You got that right there is a community named after a ceramic frog. It is Frog Eye, Alabama. Legend has it that during the Prohibition Era there was a saloon owner who kept a little ceramic frog in the window of his saloon all the time. The reason for this was that if the police happened to be in the bar he would close one of the frog’s eyes and in this way, customers would know that at this time they could not order any illegal liquor.

Today Frog Eye counts as an unincorporated community and is known for its unusual name.
