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