Welcome to King ...

So far, we found very little information about King. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added King to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of King - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with King, please Contact Us.


While we don't have the exact location of King , we believe that it would have been located within present day Lea County<2>.

While we don't have a date for the founding of King, you might consider that their post office opened  in 1909.

Time Zone: The area where King was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

If King still existed, it would have been in the (575) area code.

Using our Gazetteer, we found that there are 32 communities that are also named King - they are located in Arkansas (2), California (2), Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan (4), Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas (3), Utah, Virginia (2), West Virginia (2) and Wisconsin.

Adding King to Our Gazetteer ...

We originally found mention of King in the GNIS. For more information, see the Referenced GNIS Codes section on our Miscellaneous Page.

From our notes, the earliest published mention we've found for King was in the document titled List of Post Offices from Cameron Blevins and Richard Helbock.<3>

From that list, the King post office opened in 1909.

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 King, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of New Mexico's counties, including Lea, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>A copy of their list with background information can be found at:
