Welcome to Akers ...
Although we found mention of Akers during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Akers 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.
While we are confident that Akers was located in Harlan County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Akers to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Akers - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Akers, please Contact Us.
