Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Washington's counties, including Grays Harbor, 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>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Ocosta. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Ocosta - 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' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Ocosta) 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 Ocosta.
