Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Georgia's counties, including Houston, 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 Centerville.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Centerville - 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 city (such as Centerville). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Centerville or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Centerville) 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 Centerville. 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 CentervilleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Centerville.
