A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Algoma ...
Although we found mention of Algoma during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Algoma 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 Algoma was located in Kootenai County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Algoma to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Algoma - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Algoma, please Contact Us.

Adding Algoma 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 Algoma: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Algoma on our Genealogy Page.
