Welcome to Agate ...

Although we found mention of Agate during our research, we have little 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.

While we are confident that Agate was located in Nobles County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

We've added Agate to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Agate - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Agate, please Contact Us.




Time Zone: The area where we believe that Agate might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Agate would be found within the (507) area code.

Communities Also Named Agate ...

Using our Gazetteer, we have found that there are 10 communities that are also named Agate - they are located in British Columbia, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ontario, Utah and Washington (2).

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 south 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 county. 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.
