Welcome to Alpine ...

The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<2>

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




Alpine would have been located within present day Esmeralda County.

While the community is gone, the present day location for Alpine is 5,410 feet [1,649 m] above sea level.<3> In other words, the altitude of Alpine is about 1 mile [or ~1¾ km] above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where Alpine was located is in the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT) and observes daylight saving time

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 Alpine and then turned west". While Alpine could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Alpine 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 Alpine 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.

<2>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Alpine, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alpine - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that begins in Alpine. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Alpine) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alpine. The point that we are using is located at the coordinates of 38.0269, -117.5645   [Map]. The coordinates for Alpine have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
