A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Northwest ...
Although we found mention of Northwest during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Northwest was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Northwest was located in Scott County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Northwest to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Northwest - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Northwest, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Northwest might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Northwest would be found within the (563) area code.
