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