Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Parowan Adobe Fort, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Utah's counties, including Iron, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>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.
<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 from Point A (ie- Parowan Adobe Fort) 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 Parowan Adobe Fort. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Parowan Adobe FortOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Parowan Adobe Fort.

While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
