Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of the state's counties, including Bristol, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Barrington - 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 Barrington). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Barrington 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 drawn from Point A (ie- Barrington) 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 Barrington. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from BarringtonOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Barrington.
