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