Hell's Half Acre

Posted by William Wang on August 24, 2003

Wondering if anyone has more origin information for this phrase.

I've traced it to:

A red-light district in Ft. Worth, Texas, named roughly in the 1850s or 1860s.

Also in 1912 a half-acre size bunker on 7th hole of the Pine Valley Golf Club.
