Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Missouri's counties, including Henry, 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 Bowen - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>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- Bowen) 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 Bowen. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bowen

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bowen. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.5581, Longitude: -93.5910       In this case, the coordinates for Bowen have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
