Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Michigan's counties, including Kalamazoo, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alamo - 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. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Alamo) 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 Alamo. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alamo

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alamo. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.3752, Longitude: -85.7078
