Welcome to Asa ...

Although we found mention of Asa during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Asa 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 Asa was located in Twiggs County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

We've added Asa to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Asa - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Asa, please Contact Us.

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Asa might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Asa would be found within the (478) area code.

Adding Asa 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.

That's the case with Asa: The earliest map where we found it was on a Rand McNally Map of Georgia (1911).

We also found Asa on a .

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Asa and then turned east". While Asa could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Asa as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Asa could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
