How Far From Foxwood 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 Foxwood to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Montgomery [Map], which is the Seat of Montgomery County, lies just to the West Northwest.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies just to the West Northwest (WNW).
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 682 miles [1,097.6 km] to the Northeast (NE). If you could drive a straight line from Foxwood to White House, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take just about two full days to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 39 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 27 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,580 miles [10,589.5 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>

<2>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

<3>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 Foxwood to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
