<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Mineral Wells - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (681) is an overlay for area code (304).

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