When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Edgar or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Edgar) 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 Edgar.
