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