A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Avon ...
Although we found mention of Avon during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Avon 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 Avon to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Avon, please Contact Us.
Avon is 5,170 feet [1,576 m] above sea level.<2> In other words, the elevation of Avon is about 1 mile [or ~1½ km] above sea level.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Avon might be (or was) located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time
Note: If you travel west from Avon, you will leave Mountain Time and cross into the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT).
We believe that Avon would be found within the (435) area code.
