The tiny community of Two Egg is located in northeastern Jackson County in the panhandle of Northwest Florida. Found just a couple of miles northwest of Dellwood on Hwy. 69, Two Egg, Florida's major claim to fame is its curious name. Two Egg T-shirts are a popular tourist item, with the Two Egg town sign being one of the most popular illegal "souvenirs" taken home by visitors.

Origin of its unusual name
Most of the area's early settlers agree that Two Egg, Florida received its whimsical name as a result of the common practice poor residents had of trading eggs for goods at a local general store. This "two-egg" bartering thus lent its name to the community after a traveling salesman noted the routine during a sales call to the store.
