A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Alligator ...
Although we found mention of Alligator during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alligator 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..
While we are confident that Alligator was located in Tangipahoa Parish, we don't know its actual location within the parish.
We've added Alligator to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alligator - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alligator, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Alligator might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Alligator would be found within the (985) area code.
