A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Avila ...
Although we found mention of Avila during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Avila 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 Avila was located in San Luis Obispo County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Avila to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Avila - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Avila, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Avila might be (or was) located is in the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Avila would be found within the (805) area code.
