Welcome to Agate ...

Although we found mention of Agate during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Agate was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.

We've added Agate to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Agate, please Contact Us.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Agate and then turned west". While Agate could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Agate as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Agate could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance starting from Agate. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Agate) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Agate. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 50.2667, Longitude: -121.1167     [Map].

<3>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Agate were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
