A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Although we found mention of Avena during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Avena 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..
One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Avena. If you can help us locate Avena, please Contact Us.
