A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Africa ...
Although we found mention of Africa during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Africa was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Africa was located in Franklin County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Africa to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Africa - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Africa, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Africa might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Africa would be found within the (717) area code.
