Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Pennsylvania's counties, including Westmoreland, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.

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 city (such as Latrobe). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Latrobe or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Latrobe. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Latrobe
