Naw, I don't think there's a list other than maybe just with a map or something...I'm just talking about funny-sounding towns we've seen on our travels across the state. I also like Calico Rock, but I like Calico Rock - I just think it's a neat name.

Booger Hollow isn't too far from me...though I've never heard it pronounced any way other than Booger Holler...

I have a list of all the towns and about 70% of the place names in AR..I don't have a Booger Holler on it ...must be real small...where's it at and I'll add it.

It's on Hwy. 7 outside of Russellville, mostly used for giving directions since the "town" is basically closed. Wait, here it is in Wikipedia!

The main attraction in the town was a two-story outhouse

Imboden. How could you also not like the supposed story for Ink??? Technically speaking, Booger Holler's not a town, it's a business.

Isn't Monkey Run just a colloquial name for St. Joe? My dad grew up there and said some people called it that if I remember right.

Looks like it's about 10 miles west of Mtn. Home...up in Baxter County. Are you talking about St. Joe's down near HS and Mt. Ida?

I don't know the story for Ink...do tell...

Nope, I was talking about the Searcy Co. St. Joe.

Marked Tree, Arkansas is another worthy contender.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Felsenthal, my mom was from there, lovely little town in South Arkansas on the Ouachita river.
