<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>The full book title is Place Names in Colorado: Why 700 Communities were so named, 150 of Spanish or Indian origin. See our References and Mentions section for Allenspark.
