Although we found mention of Ravenna Park during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Ravenna Park 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..

One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Ravenna Park. If you can help us locate Ravenna Park, please Contact Us.


Various Identification Codes ...

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies created a set of codes with a purpose similar to the GNIS codes. These codes are called the Federal Information Processing Standard (or the FIPS 55 codes). Although they are still used by some organizations, the FIPS codes are obsolete and will ultimately be replaced by the GNIS codes.

While FIPS codes have been assigned to all counties and states, a specific code has not been assigned to Ravenna Park. The following FIPS codes apply to the State and County:

State Code:  53 (Washington)
County Code:  033 (King County)

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Ravenna Park is located in Region #4 (the West Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Ravenna Park is located in Division #9 (the Pacific Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Ravenna Park is located in Region X (Region 10).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Ravenna Park is located in Region X (Region 10).

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Ravenna Park and then turned west". While Ravenna Park could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Ravenna Park as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Ravenna Park could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.

Since confusion between counties is common, we searched and weren't able to find another Washington community named Ravenna Park.
