Adding Norway to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Norway in both the FIPS-55 and the GNIS. For more information, see the FIPS and GNIS Codes sections on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Norway elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

For more details about the above, see References and Mentions for Norway on our Genealogy Page.

Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Michigan's counties, including Dickinson, 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>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Norway.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Norway - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a city (such as Norway). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Norway or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>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 drawn from Point A (ie- Norway) 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 Norway. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Norway

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Norway. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.8025, Longitude: -87.9148       In this case, the coordinates for Norway have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
