A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Grandfather, North Carolina
Welcome to Grandfather ...
Although we found mention of Grandfather during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Grandfather 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 Grandfather was located in Watauga County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Grandfather to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Grandfather - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Grandfather, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Grandfather might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Grandfather would be found within the (828) area code.
