The location of Limestone









Census Data for Limestone ...

Although we found mention of Limestone during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Over time, we expect to discover additional information that will be added to our Gazetteer..

One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Limestone. If you can help us locate Limestone, please Contact Us.


As far as we can tell, Limestone has not been included in past Census counts, so there is no population information for this community.

Monroe County ...

Limestone is located in Monroe County.

For more information, please visit our Census Page for Monroe County.

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 Limestone and then turned west". While Limestone could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Limestone 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 Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek 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 Limestone 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 county. 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.

Just in case there has been confusion between counties, we found that there are two Alabama communities named Limestone: This one is located in Monroe County and the other is located in Madison County. For more information, see our Tidbits & Trivia Page for Limestone.
