<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Montana's counties, including Mineral, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Alberton. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<3>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Alberton.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Alberton or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Alberton) 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 Alberton. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alberton
