Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Arkansas' counties, including Nevada, 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 Rosston.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Rosston - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient.
