<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 King Island, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around King Island - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
