The area now known as Welcome was settled primarily by people arriving from Germany and was once called Hinklesville, presumably after a founding family or early resident. The current name of Welcome was given because of a dispute over what to name the local railroad depot. There are two legends pointing to the origin of the name: it was chosen either because of the depot’s welcome sign, or because a man declared, “Everybody’s welcome here!”
