Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Alabama's counties, including DeKalb, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Crossville.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Crossville - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Crossville or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>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 drawn from Point A (ie- Crossville) to Point B.

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