A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Windom ...
Although we found mention of Windom during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Windom 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 Windom was located in Lewis County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Windom to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Windom - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Windom, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Windom might be (or was) located is in the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Windom would be found within the (360) area code.
