A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Adelaide, North Carolina
Welcome to Adelaide ...
Although we found mention of Adelaide during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Adelaide 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 Adelaide was located in Rockingham County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Adelaide to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Adelaide - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Adelaide, please Contact Us.
