Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of New Mexico's counties, including Cibola, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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. In other words, it's how the residents of Harrisburg refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Harrisburg may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Harrisburg - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>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- Harrisburg) 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 Harrisburg. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from HarrisburgOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Harrisburg.
