Bucket of Blood Street and 6 Other Terribly Dark Place Names in the USA

(Photo: Peter Eimon)

There’s a town in Texas called Cut and Shoot. I’ve long advocated moving there for the sole purpose of having it in my home address. Or if that’s not convenient, I’ll be happy to live on Bat Cave Road in San Antonio.

If you’re a bit more macabre, then Sarah Black of Atlas Obscura has 7 places with names with dark implications. Sadly, they’re marred by actual historical violence, such as Bucket of Blood Street in Holbrook, Arizona. It’s named after a particularly savage gunfight between rival gangs in 1886.
