How Far From East Haven to ...

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

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in East Haven to:

  • Tuscumbia [Map], which is the Seat of Colbert County, lies just to the Southwest.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 183 miles [294.5 km] to the South Southeast (SSE). If you could drive a straight line from East Haven to Montgomery, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take a little over three hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 11 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 8 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 652 miles [1,049.3 km] to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving would take just over a day, a buggy would take 26 days and walking would take 37 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,528 miles [10,505.8 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>
