1890 Communities Near Tappahannock ...

We largely built the following list with information that came from an Atlas published by Rand McNally in 1895. The Atlas had details such as the population of the community (which appears to have come from the 1890 Census) and whether there was a post office and/or railroad service available. Over time, we will continue to add communities that we find during on-going research.

If it applies, we indicate whether a community no longer exists and is now historic.<1>

The Rand McNally Atlas shows that Tappahannock had a population of 452 people in 1895 with a post office and no railroad service. In 2020, Tappahannock had a population of 2,400 people.

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 Tappahannock, 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' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Tappahannock) 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 Tappahannock. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from TappahannockOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Tappahannock. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.9184, Longitude: -76.8666       In this case, the coordinates for Tappahannock have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
