As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Adria in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Adria elsewhere: The earliest map where we found it was on a Rand McNally Map of Virginia (1911).

Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Virginia's counties, including Tazewell, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Adria - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>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 from Point A (ie- Adria) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Adria. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.1687, Longitude: -81.5459       In this case, the coordinates for Adria have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
