<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>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Greenwood.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Greenwood - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Area code (534) is an overlay for area code (715).

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