Footnotes ...

<1>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Abbott - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<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.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Abbott. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Abbott
