1890 Communities Near Montesano ...

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 Montesano had a population of 1,632 people in 1895 with railroad service and no post office. In 2020, Montesano had a population of 4,074 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 Montesano, 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 obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Montesano) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Montesano. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from MontesanoOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Montesano. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.9815, Longitude: -123.6008
