A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Shaw ...
Although we found mention of Shaw during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Shaw 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 Shaw was located in Jefferson County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Shaw to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Shaw - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Shaw, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Shaw might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Shaw would be found within the (205) area code.
