Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Minnesota's counties, including Kittson, 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 Lancaster.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Lancaster - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Lancaster) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Lancaster. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from LancasterOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Lancaster.
