We've added Henry to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Henry, please Contact Us.


Henry would have been located within present day Elko County<2>.

We aren't confident of the location of Henry, so consider the above location as an estimate.<3>

While the community is gone, the present day location for Henry is 5,450 feet [1,661 m] above sea level.<4> In other words, the altitude of Henry is about 1 mile [or ~1¾ km] above sea level.

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 Henry, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Nevada's counties, including Elko, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Henry - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Henry) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Henry. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from HenryOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Henry. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.6974, Longitude: -114.8254       In this case, the coordinates for Henry have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<6>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.
