Welcome to Atbara ...

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

We've added Atbara to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Atbara - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Atbara, please Contact Us.




The origin (or the toponymy) of Atbara: A railroad siding named for Lord Kitchener's 1898 victory in Sudan at the Battle of Atbara. When this siding was abandoned, the name Atbara was assigned to the siding at Lasca Creek.

Time Zone: The area where Atbara was located is in the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: PST- Heure Normale du Pacifique (HNP).

If Atbara still existed, it would have been in the (250) & (778)<2> area codes.

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 Atbara, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
