How Far From Bartlett to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Bartlett to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers and using the location of where the historic<1> community of Bartlett once stood, the straight-line distance<2> beginning in Bartlett to:

  • Guntersville [Map], which is the Seat of Marshall County, lies 12 miles [19.3 km] to the North. If you could walk a straight line from Bartlett to Guntersville, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take five to six hours to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take nearly four hours.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 127 miles [204.4 km] to the South (S). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than three hours, a buggy would take 5 days and walking would take 8 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 605 miles [973.7 km] to the Northeast (NE). Driving would take just over a day, a buggy would take 24 days and walking would take 35 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Bartlett, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

- Return to Citation

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance beginning in Bartlett. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bartlett) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bartlett. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.1879, Longitude: -86.2578     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Bartlett have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

- Return to Citation

<3>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<4>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Bartlett to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 313.387 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 309.046 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 309.93 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<8>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer as a placeholder. As we find more information about that community, it will be added to our Gazetteer.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that the community could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.
