Welcome to Central ...

Although we found mention of Central during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Central 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.

We've added Central to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Central, please Contact Us.




Central is 980 feet [299 m] above sea level.<2>.

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Central might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Central would be found within the (785) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Central and then turned east". While Central could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Central as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Miller Creek to see Pete ... Miller Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Central could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
