The location of Avon









Welcome to Avon ...

Although we found mention of Avon during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Avon 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 Avon was located in Clay County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

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


Time Zone: The area where we believe that Avon might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Avon would be found within the (816) area code.

Communities Also Named Avon ...

While we believe that this Avon is located in Clay County, we know of another 2 Missouri communities named Avon. Those communities are located in the following counties: Cass and Sainte Genevieve County.

Beyond Missouri, there are 40 communities that are also named Avon - they are located in Alabama, Arkansas, California (2), Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas (2), Kentucky (2), Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, New Brunswick, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Ontario (3), Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah (2), Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin (2).

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Avon and then turned west". While Avon could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Avon as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Avon could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
