How Far From Lakewood Estates to ...

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

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

  • Dothan [Map], which is the Seat of Houston County, lies just to the North Northeast.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 94 miles [151.3 km] to the North Northwest (NNW). If you could drive a straight line from Lakewood Estates to Montgomery, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 6 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of three days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 712 miles [1,145.9 km] to the Northeast (NE). Driving would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 28 days and walking would take 41 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,603 miles [10,626.5 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>
