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 Westhope or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

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

<7>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<8>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
