Welcome to Voorhees ...

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

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

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

While we don't have a date for the founding of Voorhees, you might consider that their post office opened  in 1887.

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

Using our Gazetteer, we found that there are 5 communities that are also named Voorhees - they are located in Indiana, Missouri, New Jersey (2) and Wyoming.

Adding Voorhees 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 Voorhees was in the document titled List of Post Offices from Cameron Blevins and Richard Helbock.<3>

From that list, the Voorhees post office opened in 1887.

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 Voorhees, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Kansas' counties, including Stevens, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
