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

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

If you could walk a straight line from Green Pond to Centreville, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take just over a day to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take five to six hours.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 78 miles [125.5 km] to the Southeast (SE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than two hours, a buggy would take most of three days and walking would take 5 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 685 miles [1,102.4 km] to the Northeast (NE). Driving would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 27 days and walking would take 39 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance from Green Pond. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Green Pond) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Green Pond. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.2251, Longitude: -87.1264     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Green Pond have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<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 Green Pond to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
