Welcome to Asay (aka 'Asay Town') ...

So far, we have found very little information about Asay. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

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




Asay would have been located within present day Garfield County.

Asay was settled in 1872.

The origin (or the toponymy) of Asay: Named after Joseph Asay, an early settler in this area.

Time Zone: The area where Asay was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you travel south from Asay (for example, toward Fredonia (AZ)), you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Mountain Standard Time Zone (MST). In addition, you will be moving from an area that observes daylight saving time to one that does not.

The location where Asay once stood is in the (435) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>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 significantly 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 Asay, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
