The location of Amos









Welcome to Amos ...

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

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




Amos would have been located within present day Imperial County.

While the community is gone, the present day location for Amos is 260 feet [79 m] above sea level.<2>.

Time Zone: The area where Amos was located is in the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you travel east from Amos, you will leave Pacific Time and cross into the Mountain Standard Time Zone (MST). In addition, you will be moving from an area that observes daylight saving time to one that does not.

If Amos still existed, it would have been in the (760) & (442)<3> 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 Amos, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

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