Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of South Carolina's counties, including Williamsburg, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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.
<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. In other words, it's how the residents of Rome 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 Rome may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Rome - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Rome) 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 Rome. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from RomeOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rome. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.6479, Longitude: -79.4381       In this case, the coordinates for Rome have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<6>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<7>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.
