The location of Avena









Welcome to Avena ...

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

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

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




While we don't have the exact location of Avena, we believe that it would have been located within present day Inyo County.

From The Origin of Certain Place Names,<2> the origin of Avena is described as "A Spanish word, meaning oats."

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

Using our Gazetteer, we have found that there are two California communities named Avena: This one is located in Inyo County and the other is located in San Joaquin County.

Beyond California, there are 3 communities that are also named Avena - they are located in Illinois and Kentucky.

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