Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Missouri's counties, including Pettis, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for La Monte.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around La Monte - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether La Monte or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- La Monte) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for La Monte. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from La Monte
