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 North Brook, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of North Carolina's counties, including Lincoln, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around North Brook - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Area code (980) is an overlay for area code (704).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- North Brook) 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 North Brook. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from North BrookOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in North Brook. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.4815, Longitude: -81.4798       In this case, the coordinates for North Brook have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<7>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<8>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
