Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of New York's counties, including Ontario, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Gorham - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

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 Gorham). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Gorham 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- Gorham) 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 Gorham.
