<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 Antioch, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Nebraska's counties, including Sheridan, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Antioch - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Antioch) 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 Antioch.
