Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Tennessee's counties, including Shelby, 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 Millington.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Millington - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. 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 Millington). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Millington or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Millington) 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 Millington. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Millington
