Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Tishomingo, 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 Belmont.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Belmont - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Belmont 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 Belmont.
