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 New Prairie, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Minnesota's counties, including Pope, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<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 drawn from Point A (ie- New Prairie) 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 New Prairie. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from New PrairieOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in New Prairie. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.6084, Longitude: -95.6398    
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.

While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
