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