How Far From Morrisville 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 Morrisville 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 Morrisville once stood, the straight-line distance<2> beginning in Morrisville to:

  • Geneva [Map], which is the Seat of Geneva County, lies just to the East Southeast.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 91 miles [146.5 km] to the North Northwest (NNW). If you could drive a straight line from Morrisville to Montgomery, with an average speed<3>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 737 miles [1,186.1 km] to the Northeast (NE). Driving would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 29 days and walking would take 42 days.
  • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,630 miles [10,670 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 7,326 miles [11,790.1 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

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 Morrisville, 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' distance that starts in Morrisville. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Morrisville) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Morrisville. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.0549, Longitude: -85.9110     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Morrisville 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 Morrisville 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 312.98 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 308.142 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 310.458 degrees.
