1890 Communities Near Higgins Corner ...

We largely built the following list with information that came from an Atlas published by Rand McNally in 1895. The Atlas had details such as the population of the community (which appears to have come from the 1890 Census) and whether there was a post office and/or railroad service available. Over time, we will continue to add communities that we find during on-going research.

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

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance starting from Higgins Corner. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Higgins Corner) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Higgins Corner. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.0427, Longitude: -121.0949     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Higgins Corner have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
