Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Wisconsin's counties, including Burnett, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alpha - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (534) is an overlay for area code (715).
<4>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.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Alpha) 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 Alpha. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alpha
