A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Atkinson ...
Although we found mention of Atkinson during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Atkinson was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Atkinson was located in Clarke County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Atkinson to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Atkinson - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Atkinson, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Atkinson might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
