So far, we have found very little information about Monticello.<1>

The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<2>

We've added Monticello to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Monticello, please Contact Us.




How Far From Monticello to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers, Almanacs & Directories that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Monticello 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 community of Monticello once stood, the straight-line distance<3> beginning in Monticello to:

  • Napa [Map], which is the Seat of Napa County, lies 19 miles [30.6 km] to the South Southwest. If you could walk a straight line from Monticello to Napa, with an average speed<4> 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 6 hours.
  • Sacramento [Map], which is the State Capital of California, lies 38 miles [61.2 km] to the East (E). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than an hour, a buggy would take just about two full days and walking would take over two days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 2,407 miles [3,873.7 km] to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving would take 5 days, a buggy would take 94 days and walking would take 137 days.
  • The shortest distance<5> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 7,359 miles [11,843.2 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<6>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 8,125 miles [13,075.9 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<7>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 6,184 miles [9,952.2 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<8>

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Monticello and then turned west". While Monticello could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Monticello as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Monticello could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.

- Return to Citation

<2>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 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 Monticello, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

- Return to Citation

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance from Monticello. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Monticello) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Monticello. The point that we are using is located at the coordinates of 38.5777, -122.2072   [Map]. The coordinates for Monticello have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

- Return to Citation

<4>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

<5>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 Monticello to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 340.108 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 341.079 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<8>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 328.034 degrees.
