In addition, we also found mention of Greenwood elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

<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.

<4>Area code (681) is an overlay for area code (304).
