The current system of identification is called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). The following GNIS codes relate to McCosh Mill:

GNIS ID for Chambers County: 161534

GNIS ID for Alabama: 1779775

The FIPS Codes ...

County Code: 017 (Chambers County)

Place Code: 45080 (McCosh Mill)

State & County Code: 01/017 (Alabama / Chambers County)

State & Place Code: 01/45080 (Alabama / McCosh Mill)

Misc. Census Codes ...

McCosh Mill would have been located in Census Region #3 (the South Region) and Division #6 (the East South-Central Division).

The US Postal Service ZIP Code ...

While some people have used a ZIP code to identify a community, the purpose of the ZIP code was to make mail delivery more efficient by grouping addresses together. Although the ZIP Code doesn't specifically identify a community like McCosh Mill, it does identify addresses that are in (or near) McCosh Mill. It's important to remember that the boundaries of a ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.

The ZIP code for McCosh Mill: 36274<5>

Census ZCTA Codes ...

The US Census Bureau created statistical entities that they call ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs) and these ZCTAs are frequently confused with the ZIP codes that come from the US Postal Service (USPS).

ZCTAs were first created for the 2000 Census and at that time, they were based upon the USPS ZIP codes. While largely covering the same areas, the boundaries of a ZCTA do not necessarily match the boundaries of a postal ZIP code with the same number. For example, while a postal ZIP code can cross a county or state line, a Census ZCTA can not. They should be treated as separate entities with no correlation between them.

For more information about the various Federal identification codes, please visit our Misc Page for McCosh Mill.
