Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Kentucky's counties, including Bracken, 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 Brooksville.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Brooksville - 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 Brooksville).

A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Brooksville) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Brooksville. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from BrooksvilleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Brooksville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.6817, Longitude: -84.0666       In this case, the coordinates for Brooksville have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<7>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
