<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Alabama's counties, including Coosa, 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 Goodwater.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Goodwater or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

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