So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Abbot). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Abbot or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<7>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Abbot) 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 Abbot. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Abbot

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Abbot. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.2017, Longitude: -69.4622    
<8>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.
