1890 Communities Near Oro Blanco ...

We largely built the following list with information that came from an Atlas published by Rand McNally in 1895. The Atlas had details such as the population of the community (which appears to have come from the 1890 Census) and whether there was a post office and/or railroad service available. Over time, we will continue to add communities that we find during on-going research.

If it applies, we indicate whether a community no longer exists and is now historic.<1>

Oro Blanco itself is historic and was described in the Rand McNally Atlas as having a population of 31 people in 1895 with a post office and no railroad service.
