Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of New Hampshire's counties, including Belknap, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alton Bay - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Alton Bay). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Alton Bay 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 Alton Bay. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alton Bay
