<1>If you're interested in how the shape of West Virginia's counties, including Tyler, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Atwood - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (681) is an overlay for area code (304).
<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.

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