<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Clay, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Una - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Una. 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 Una
