Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Pennsylvania's counties, including Lehigh, 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 Emmaus.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Emmaus - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Emmaus or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Emmaus) 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 Emmaus. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Emmaus
