1890 Communities Near Gold Point ...

We largely built the following list with information that came from an Atlas published by Rand McNally in 1895. The Atlas had details such as the population of the community (which appears to have come from the 1890 Census) and whether there was a post office and/or railroad service available. Over time, we will continue to add communities that we find during on-going research.

If it applies, we indicate whether a community no longer exists and is now historic.<1>

While we didn't find Gold Point in the Atlas, the following communities of the 1890's would have been found near the current location of Gold Point.

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 Gold Point, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>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 from Point A (ie- Gold Point) 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 Gold Point. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Gold PointOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Gold Point. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.8703, Longitude: -77.2425    
<3>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.
