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.

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.
