Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of South Dakota's counties, including Dewey, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Glencross - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

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

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Glencross.
