Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of West Virginia's counties, including Mineral, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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 Burlington 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 Burlington may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Burlington - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (681) is an overlay for area code (304).
<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- Burlington) 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 Burlington. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Burlington

While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
