<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Georgia's counties, including Gordon, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Oakman - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (762) is an overlay for area code (706).

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Oakman) 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 Oakman.
