Place Finders

Do you often find yourself wanting or needing to know what county a city is located in or what places might be found in a specific county?

You could do a Google search but what if you had a handy list that included a list of all the cities, other places, and ghost towns that identified their corresponding county along with a list of the counties in a state that listed all of the places in that county?

What is a place? Besides cities and towns, you will find that the names of other places may vary from state to state. Most states have  Census Designated Places, Unincorporated communities, Indian Reservations, and ghost towns. Other places may be known as villages, hamlets, historic districts, townships, boroughs, municipalities, and more.

Each state has a list of all the places in the state and their corresponding county.

It is important to understand that the county and place correlations are based on today’s geography. Defunct counties and the places that were in them when they existed, as well as changes in county borders and the resulting changes in place correlations, are also not identified in this list.

Each place has a link to a page that includes information about that place. The page may include geographical information, historical information, current information about the place and its surroundings, and much more.

Included also for each state, is a Downloadable PDF with two lists:

  • A list of places and their corresponding county
  • A list of counties with the places that are in that county

Below is a list of the links to the Finders for each state:

Good Luck and Happy Hunting
