Pigtail answer comes from Hutchison Community native
Great minds may now rest, even Mike Watson, we hope, will find comfort and peace with this revelation. This is official unless some high authority else brings entirely new angle to the issue of how Hutchison Community came to be known as "Pigtail." got the nickname.
Ruth Smith writes
Ed I am the daughter of Richard Smith. We lived on Pelham Branch all of my young life. My dad always told us that "Pigtail" got its name by putting a greased pig in a pen and who ever caught the pig would get to name it. I can't remember who caught the pig however that is how it got its name.Comments about: A good new guess for twin spires: Free Union SBC
