CUBA (1822): Here is one of the biggest mysteries in our name origins. There are many tails as to how Cuba got it’s name but nothing is concrete. One of the most active members of the Cuba Historical Society for many years was George Spanneut. He spent years researching the origin and found nothing to lead him to origin. He did find 9 other Cuba’s across the nation. Our best guess is that it is named for the island nation. Formed from Friendship February 4, 1822.
