The location of Florey













Welcome to Florey ...

Although we found mention of Florey during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Florey 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 Florey to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Florey, please Contact Us.


Florey is 3,170 feet [966 m] above sea level.<2> In other words, the altitude of Florey is about ½ mile above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Florey might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

Note: If you travel west from Florey (for example, toward Eunice (NM)), you will leave Central Time and cross into the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT).

We believe that Florey would be found within the (432) area code.

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 Florey and then turned east". While Florey could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Florey 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 Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird 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 Florey 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 county. 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>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Florey - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>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- Florey) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Florey. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.4570, Longitude: -102.5706     [Map].
