How the Town of Meatball Springs Got Its Name

Cities can get their names in unusual ways. Did you know that St. Paul, the capital of Minnesota was originally called "Pig's Eye," after the French-Canadian Whiskey trader "Pig's Eye" Parrant, who led a group of settlers there in 1839? It wasn't until a year later that a local religious leader convinced the townspeople to change the name to the more uplifting image of his patron saint, St. Paul.
