<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Alabama's counties, including Calhoun, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<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.
<3>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Ohatchee.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Ohatchee - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a town (such as Ohatchee). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Ohatchee 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 Ohatchee. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Ohatchee
