Welcome to Sylva ...
Although we found mention of Sylva during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Sylva 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 Sylva was located in Marion County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Sylva to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Sylva - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Sylva, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Sylva might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Sylva would be found within the (870) area code.
