A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Eureka ...
Although we found mention of Eureka during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Eureka 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..
While we are confident that Eureka was located in Hardin County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Eureka to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Eureka - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Eureka, please Contact Us.
When the people of Eureka refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Eurekan<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Eureka might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Eureka would be found within the (731) area code.
