Frog Eye Alabama

Stories differ as to how Frog Eye got its name but one local story says the community got its name from the practice of a local saloon owner. That story states  “In the prohibition days, there was a saloon in the community. This saloon sold legal and illegal liquor. There was a ceramic frog in the saloon window. If the state boys were in the saloon the owner would close one of the frog’s eyes so the customers would know not to ask for the illegal liquor. If both the frog’s eyes were open then it was okay to ask for the illegal liquor. The community became known all around as Frog Eye.”

Frog Eye is an unincorporated community in Tallapoosa County.
