Welcome to Lost River ...

Although we found mention of Lost River during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Lost River 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 Lost River to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Lost River - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Lost River, please Contact Us.




A typical abbreviation for Lost River: Lost Riv.

We believe that Lost River would be found within the (907) area code.

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