Welcome to Acme ...

So far, we have found very little information about Acme. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Acme to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Acme, please Contact Us.


Acme would have been located within present day Jasper County<2>.

We aren't confident of the location of Acme, so consider the above location as an estimate.<3>

Acme was established in 1823.

While the community is gone, the present day location for Acme is 420 feet [128 m] above sea level.<4>.

Time Zone: The area where Acme was located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

Acme would have been located in the (601) and (769)<5> area codes.

Adding Acme to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Acme in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Acme elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

We also found Acme on a Rand McNally Map of Mississippi (1911).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Acme on our Genealogy Page.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Acme, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Jasper, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Acme - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Area code (769) is an overlay for area code (601).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Acme) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Acme. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Acme

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Acme. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.9675, Longitude: -89.1717       In this case, the coordinates for Acme have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<7>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<8>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
