Mayor Hold was said to be none too happy about it. They don't name 'em like that anymore, which may be a good thing. But in becoming too sophisticated to call our homeland Ding Dong or Suck Egg, we find our refinement may have come at the expense of a peculiarly American sense of humor. Photo courtesy Stephen Danesi, Ding Dong is a dispersed rural community and as the saying goes: "If you find yourself in Ding Dong, you had to have been looking for it.

I grew up in in the 70's's. I could tell you things I know passed on from the older families in the area. The Ding Dong area started at the river and went north maybe a couple hundred yards and approximately yards east and west on the original road that ran through there. There used to be highway signs marking it until the 4 lane expansion. A lot of people in the area now like to say they are from Ding Dong even though they are just neighbors.
It was located on the east side of the Hwy. I still have my fire department hat from the late 's. The fire department was the defining feature of the community in the 80's and 90's. We moved from the area in We had several dozen active and well trained members. The store pretty much decayed back into the ground. It was in a wide spot on the east side of just a few hundred feet before the river north side. There is a reference to the intersection of that incorrectly names this as the way to Marksdale, It's Maxdale.
Thanks for the memories and the history lesson. I decided to go out there to take some photos, but I could not find the country store or at least the sign contributed by Stephen Danesi. The volunteer fire department was behind the store which appeared to be closed.
I asked someone who worked at a mechanic's shop there about Ding Dong, and he replied "You're in it.
They didn't know about the Ding Dong country store I was looking for or if the one in their same lot was the one I was searching for. I asked if there was any signs that said Ding Dong on the highway or anywhere in town and they said there used to be one by the Lampasas River but people keep stealing them, and the only other evidence of the town being named Ding Dong was the fact it was printed on the fire trucks however the trucks were out of sight. If anyone has any current information on how to get to the country store that has a sign proclaiming Ding Dong, I'd really appreciate it. Or a physical address if possible.
I was told the name came from the fact that the Bell brothers lived there..
