North Carolina-Zip Codes-February 25


North Carolina People, Places, and Things-February 25

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special.

Sometimes my brain poses a question to me and I want to find out the answer. This morning on my commute to work I drove by the US Post Office in Pembroke NC.

That image of the post office got me to think about Zip Codes. What numbers are used in North Carolina.

The answer is they start at the number 27006 for Advance NC located in Davie County and end with 28909 in Clay County for a town I never heard of before called Warne. Warne is not actually a town it is an unincorporated area of Brasstown, NC. It is located just a few mile north of the NC/GA state line.

Zip codes starting appearing on mail in 1963.

The five numbers in a zip code have a purpose.

  • The first digit designates a broad area, which ranges from zero for the Northeast to nine for the far West.
  • The two following digits are the code of a central post office facility in that region.
  • The last two digits designate small post offices or postal zones.

I found a link that list the highest income zip codes based on tax returns for North Carolina.
