9 Places Named After Food

Turkey, Tex.

Turkey, Tex.

This small town in Hall County, Tex., got its name from the poultry that used to congregate in the area.

The town’s first post office was dug into the banks of a creek, and that creek is where wild turkey roosted.

In 2011, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals unsuccessfully tried to get the town’s name changed to “Tofurky.”
