Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Kansas' counties, including Mitchell, 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>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Beloit.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Beloit - 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 Beloit).

Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from BeloitOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Beloit.
