<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>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Ashley. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Ashley or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<7>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Ashley) 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 Ashley. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Ashley
