Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Wisconsin's counties, including Portage, 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 Stevens Point.

The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Stevens Point or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Stevens Point) 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 Stevens Point. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Stevens Point

<7>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
