Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Virginia's counties, including Prince William, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<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>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 Montclair 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 Montclair may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Montclair - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Area code (571) is an overlay for area code (703).
<6>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 drawn from Point A (ie- Montclair) to Point B.

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