<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Yoncalla.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Yoncalla - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Area code (458) is an overlay for area code (541).

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

<8>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.
