The Commemorative Quarter for New York

Do you know of Utopia ???

When we encounter a name that is new to us, we add it to our Gazetteer - that's the case with Utopia.

This entry has been created as a placeholder - we hope to develop more information in the future.

This entry could be in error. It might be that our source had a mis-print, was simply wrong or we made a transcription error while referencing it. We hope to learn more about Utopia in the future.

We found mention of Utopia as a post office, but can't determine its location - other than being located somewhere in Allegany County, New York.

It's common that the post office is named the same as the community in which it's located (although that's not always case). In this case, we can't match this post office to any of the existing communities in our gazetteer.

While we don't have a date for the founding of Utopia, you might consider that their post office opened  in 1880.

Using our Gazetteer, we found that there are two New York communities named Utopia: This one is located in Allegany County and the other is located in Queens County.
