The location of Asay









Welcome to Asay (aka 'Asay Town') ...

So far, we have found very little information about Asay. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

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


Asay would have been located within present day Garfield County.

Asay was settled in 1872.

The origin (or the toponymy) of Asay: Named after Joseph Asay, an early settler in this area.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Asay, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Asay) 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 Asay. 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 Asay

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Asay. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.5857, Longitude: -112.4819     [Map].
