Adding Cheshire to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Cheshire in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Cheshire elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

We also found Cheshire on a Rand McNally Map of Connecticut (1911).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Cheshire on our Genealogy Page.

Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Connecticut's counties, including New Haven, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Cheshire - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (475) is an overlay for area code (203).
<4>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Cheshire). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Cheshire or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

Our list of ZIP Codes for Cheshire includes: 06408, 06410 & 06411.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Cheshire) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Cheshire. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Cheshire

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Cheshire. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.5043, Longitude: -72.9040    
<6>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<7>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.
