<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Pennsylvania's counties, including Chester, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Paoli - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (484) is an overlay for area code (610).

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