Adding Cherry Creek to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Cherry Creek in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Cherry Creek elsewhere: The earliest map where we found it was on a George F. Cram Map of Nevada (1883).

We also found Cherry Creek mentioned in the book Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).
