There are several Avons around the country---------and it looks like your Avon has some real history behind it.
Funny-----------but we pronounce Avon as Av
---on; while most others are pronounced A
-von (as with the cosmetic line). We just always figured that the rest of the country was mis-pronouncing it???
We did run upon a pretty little girl up in Oxford, Mississippi in recent years that was named Avon (and pronounced it as we do); but she had no idea as to where her mom and dad came up with that name------------and had never heard of Avon, Mississippi until my nephew told her about it.
Maybe our sign should read: Please don't blink your eyes--------you will miss us!!!
We do have a school, post office, church, cotton gin and one country store (sometimes the store has gas------and sometimes they don't).
