According to one local legend, Cut and Shoot was named after a 1912 community confrontation that almost led to violence. According to differing versions of the story, the dispute was either over:
- The design of a new steeple for the town's only church,
- The issue of who should be allowed to preach there, or
- The conflicting land claims among church members.
Bonus - Downton Abbey's Countess Violet to Lord Grantham - Your father always told the village what they wanted.
funny how a tv show quote could apply to old Cut and Shoot back in the day. However, their town name would probably be very bland.
