How Far From Lakeville 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 Lakeville to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance from Lakeville to:

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance from Lakeville. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Lakeville) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Lakeville. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Lakeville

<2>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

<3>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 Lakeville to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
