Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Arkansas' counties, including Mississippi, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Osceola.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Osceola - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Osceola.
