SPASTICVILLE, Kan., April 10 (UPI) -- The city administrator of Spasticville, Kan., said he has applied to the U.S. Geological Survey to have the city's name changed to Trails End.
The administrator said he collected the proper amount of signatures and sent them in with the accompanying forms to apply for the name change, KWCH-TV, Wichita, Kan., reported Thursday. He said it could be months before researchers analyze the proposal and send it to the U.S. Board on Geographic Names for a decision.
Residents of the Sedgwick County town said accounts vary on how Spasticville got its name, but some theorize it was named for a home for the mentally handicapped that used to be located in the area.
