Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Alabama's counties, including Washington, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Vinegar Bend - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Vinegar Bend 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 Vinegar Bend.
