<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Nebraska's counties, including Seward, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Utica. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<3>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community.

A demonym is informal and while the majority of Utica may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
