Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Washington's counties, including Pierce, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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 community (such as Anderson Island). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Anderson Island or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<3>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- Anderson Island) 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 Anderson Island. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Anderson Island

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Anderson Island. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.1644, Longitude: -122.6997
