GNIS Codes
The function of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) is to establish uniform names for geographic features (eg- communities, mountains, lakes, rivers, streams, etc). The BGN was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. BGN–accepted names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS), which is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

A unique and permanent identifier has been assigned for each feature in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive.

McGowans Ferry has been given the GNIS Feature ID of '158162'. Click here to see the GNIS Record for McGowans Ferry.

Footnotes ...



<1>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So McGowans Ferry may originally have been McGowan's Ferry. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case McGowans Ferry might be written as McGowan Ferry.
