Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of South Carolina's counties, including Darlington, 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 Syracuse 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 Syracuse may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Syracuse - 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' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Syracuse) 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 Syracuse. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from SyracuseOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Syracuse. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.2318, Longitude: -79.9680
