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 Morganville).

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