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 Greenwood, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Greenwood - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance starting from Greenwood. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Greenwood) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Greenwood. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.1327, Longitude: -122.4608     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Greenwood have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
