A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Akron ...
Although we found mention of Akron during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Akron 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 Akron was located in Kingman County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Akron to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Akron - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Akron, please Contact Us.
When the people of Akron refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Akronite<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Akron might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Akron would be found within the (620) area code.
