Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Pennsylvania's counties, including Bradford, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Alba.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alba - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Alba). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Alba 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- Alba) 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 Alba. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from AlbaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alba.
