<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Shannon - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (762) is an overlay for area code (706).

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 community (such as Shannon). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Shannon 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- Shannon) 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 Shannon.
