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

We believe that Alacupusyuen was located in Santa Barbara County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

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




Various Identification Codes ...

GNIS Codes ...

The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. The BGN will usually recognize an existing name or, when necessary, establish a new name for a geographic feature (such as a mountain, lake, river, stream, city, town, village, dam, bridge, etc).

The BGN names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) and it is the official Federal repository. The GNIS is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

A unique and permanent numeric code has been assigned for each name in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive and it is intended that they are to be used by all departments of the Federal Government:

GNIS ID for Alacupusyuen: 1816967

GNIS ID for Santa Barbara County: 277306

GNIS ID for California: 1779778

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies created a set of codes with a purpose similar to the GNIS codes. These codes are called the Federal Information Processing Standard (or the FIPS 55 codes). Although they are still used by some organizations, the FIPS codes are obsolete and will ultimately be replaced by the GNIS codes.

While FIPS codes have been assigned to all counties and states, a specific code has not been assigned to Alacupusyuen. The following FIPS codes apply to the State and County:

State Code:  06 (California)
County Code:  083 (Santa Barbara County)

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Alacupusyuen would have been located in Region #4 (the West Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Alacupusyuen would have been located in Division #9 (the Pacific Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Alacupusyuen would have been located in Region IX (Region 9).

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