Welcome to Shelley ...

So far, we have found very little information about Shelley. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Shelley to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Shelley, please Contact Us.


Shelley would have been located within present day Yavapai County<2>.

We aren't confident of the location of Shelley, so consider the above location as an estimate.<3>

While the community is gone, the present day location for Shelley is 5,150 feet [1,570 m] above sea level.<4> In other words, the altitude of Shelley is about 1 mile [or ~1½ km] above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where Shelley was located is in the Mountain Standard Time Zone (MST) and does not observe daylight saving time

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Shelley, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Arizona's counties, including Yavapai, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Shelley - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Shelley) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Shelley. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Shelley

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Shelley. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.1929, Longitude: -112.4070       In this case, the coordinates for Shelley have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<6>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
