Welcome to Achates ...
Although we found mention of Achates during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Achates 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 Achates was located in Talladega County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Achates to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Achates - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Achates, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Achates might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
