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 Nixon, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Georgia's counties, including Richmond, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Nixon - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (762) is an overlay for area code (706).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Nixon) 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 Nixon. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Nixon

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Nixon. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.3372, Longitude: -81.9553    
<6>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<7>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.
