Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Schuler.

This page contains two sections:

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

  • Gadsden [Map], which is the Seat of Etowah County, lies 15 miles [24.1 km] to the East. If you could walk a straight line from Schuler to Gadsden, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of a day to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take four to five hours.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 115 miles [185.1 km] to the South (S). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take about two hours, a buggy would take 5 days and walking would take 7 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 613 miles [986.5 km] to the Northeast (NE). Driving would take just over a day, a buggy would take 24 days and walking would take 35 days.
  • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,506 miles [10,470.4 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 7,215 miles [11,611.4 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,092 miles [8,194.8 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<7>

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 Schuler, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that stretches from Schuler. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Schuler) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Schuler. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.0187, Longitude: -86.2869     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Schuler 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 Schuler 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 313.395 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 309.032 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 309.98 degrees.
