Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Indiana's counties, including Warren, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<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>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Williamsport refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a town's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Williamsport may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Williamsport.
<5>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Williamsport - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Williamsport or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
