Interactive Map for Granite Mountain ...

We are still searching for the GPS coordinates (ie- latitude/longitude) of Granite Mountain.<1>

We have done a cursory search and haven't been able to find any evidence that Granite Mountain still exists.

If you can help with the location of Granite Mountain please contact us.

 
 
To capture the latitude and longitude of a location, grab and move the map marker to that location. When you have placed the marker on the desired location, release the marker to display its latitude and longitude.     Lat/Lon of Marker:  

A word of caution: Our map has been provided by Google and while we prefer Google maps, there can be issues with accuracy. We've provided this map to help you explore this area, but you should compare against other maps if you require accuracy.

We've tried other mapping services, but they all have issues. That said, we haven't found a mapping service that is consistently better than Google's. Until we can find more accurate maps, we'll continue with Google.

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 Granite Mountain and then turned east". While Granite Mountain could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Granite Mountain 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 (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Granite Mountain 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 - we're working to straighten it all out.

Since confusion between is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Alaska community named Granite Mountain.
