Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of West Virginia's counties, including Fayette, 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 Montgomery.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Montgomery - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

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