Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Montgomery, 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 Duck Hill.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Duck Hill - 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.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Duck Hill 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 Duck Hill. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Duck Hill
