Welcome to Dawn ...
Although we found mention of Dawn during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Dawn was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Dawn was located in Caroline County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Dawn to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Dawn - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Dawn, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Dawn might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Dawn would be found within the (804) area code.
