The Commemorative Quarter for Kansas







Welcome to Pitt ...

So far, we found very little information about Pitt. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Pitt to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Pitt - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Pitt, please Contact Us.


While we don't have the exact location of Pitt , we believe that it would have been located within present day Kingman County<2>.

While we don't have a date for the founding of Pitt, you might consider that their post office opened  in 1883.

Time Zone: The area where Pitt was located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

Pitt would have been located in the (620) area code.

Communities Also Named Pitt ...

Using our Gazetteer, we found that there are two Kansas communities named Pitt: This one is located in Kingman County and the other is located in Finney County.

Beyond Kansas, there are 7 communities that are also named Pitt - they are located in Alabama, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, South Carolina and Washington.

Adding Pitt 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.

The earliest source we've referenced which mentioned Pitt was in the document titled List of Post Offices from Cameron Blevins and Richard Helbock.<3>

From that list, the Pitt post office opened in 1883.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Pitt, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Kansas' counties, including Kingman, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
