Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Hopewell) 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 Hopewell. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from HopewellOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hopewell. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.8934, Longitude: -77.1961       In this case, the coordinates for Hopewell have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
