<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Arkansas' counties, including White, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.

<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around McRae - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- McRae) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for McRae. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from McRaeOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in McRae.
