Welcome to Akron ...

Although we found mention of Akron during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Akron was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

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


When the people of Akron refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Akronite<2>

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Akron might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: EST- Heure Normale de l'Est (HNE), EDT- Heure Avancée de l'Est (HAE).

We believe that Akron would be found within the (705) & (249)<3> area codes.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Akron and then turned east". While Akron could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Akron as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Akron could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Akron refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Akron may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<3>Area code (249) is an overlay for area code (705).
<4>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<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- Akron) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Akron. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Akron

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Akron. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.9033, Longitude: -84.1169
