<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Kentucky's counties, including Knox, 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.

The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.
