Welcome to Altan ...
Although we found mention of Altan during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Altan 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 Altan was located in Union County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Altan to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Altan - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Altan, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Altan might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Altan would be found within the (704) & (980)<2> area codes.
