Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Kentucky's counties, including Larue, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.

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

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Hodgenville.
