A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Arden ...
Although we found mention of Arden during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Arden 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 Arden was located in Pike County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Arden to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Arden - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Arden, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Arden might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Arden would be found within the (217) area code.
