Welcome to Anderson Junction ...

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


A typical abbreviation for Anderson Junction: Anderson Jct. (or less commonly used: Anderson Jctn.)

The community of Anderson Junction was named Anderson's Ranch before it was changed to Anderson Junction and going back to its beginning, it was originally named McPhersons Flat.

Anderson Junction is 3,840 feet [1,170 m] above sea level.<2> In other words, the elevation of Anderson Junction is about ¾ mile [or ~1¼ km] above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Anderson Junction might be (or was) located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

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 Anderson Junction and then turned west". While Anderson Junction could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Anderson Junction 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 Anderson Junction 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 Anderson Junction - 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 things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Anderson Junction) 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 Anderson Junction. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Anderson Junction

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Anderson Junction. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.2865, Longitude: -113.3004    
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
