Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Arkansas' counties, including Independence, 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 Cushman.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Cushman - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a city (such as Cushman). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Cushman or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

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