Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of West Virginia's counties, including Lincoln, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Alum Creek - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (681) is an overlay for area code (304).

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

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Alum Creek. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alum Creek
