A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Alps, New Mexico
Welcome to Alps ...
Although we found mention of Alps during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alps 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 Alps was located in Colfax County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alps to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alps - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alps, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Alps might be (or was) located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Alps would be found within the (575) area code.
