Footnotes ...

<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 Star of the West, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Arkansas' counties, including Pike, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Star of the West - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Star of the West) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Star of the West. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Star of the West

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Star of the West. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.2435, Longitude: -93.8252

While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
