Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Wisconsin's counties, including Walworth, 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 Whitewater.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Whitewater - 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.

When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Whitewater 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' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Whitewater) 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 Whitewater. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Whitewater
