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

This page contains two sections:

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

  • Florence [Map], which is the Seat of Lauderdale County, lies just to the South Southeast.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies 194 miles [312.2 km] to the South Southeast (SSE). If you could drive a straight line from Stoney Point to Montgomery, with an average speed<3>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take a little over three hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 11 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 8 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 649 miles [1,044.5 km] to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving would take just over a day, a buggy would take 26 days and walking would take 37 days.
  • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,522 miles [10,496.1 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 7,238 miles [11,648.4 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,114 miles [8,230.2 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 Stoney Point, 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 Stoney Point. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Stoney Point) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Stoney Point. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.8973, Longitude: -87.6925     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Stoney Point 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 Stoney Point 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 314.30 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 310.198 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 310.366 degrees.
