Welcome to Packington ...

Although we found mention of Packington during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Packington 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..

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


Time Zone: The area where we believe that Packington 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).

Note: If you travel south from Packington (for example, toward Saint Francois de Madawaska (NB)), you will soon leave Eastern Time and cross into the Atlantic Time Zone (AST/ADT).

We believe that Packington would be found within the (418) & (581)<2> 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 south past Packington and then turned east". While Packington could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Packington 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 Miller Creek to see Pete ... Miller Creek 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 Packington 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>Area code (581) is an overlay for area code (418).
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Packington) 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 Packington. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from PackingtonOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Packington. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.4833, Longitude: -68.7833    
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>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.
