1890 Communities Near Uvilla ...

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.

Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Uvilla, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
