A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Park ...
Although we found mention of Park during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Park 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 Park was located in Lyon County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Park to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Park - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Park, please Contact Us.
When the people of Park refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Parkites<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Park might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Park would be found within the (712) area code.
