How Far From Mooresville 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 Mooresville to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Lewisburg, which is the Seat of Marshall County, lies just to the East.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 593 miles [954.3 km] to the East Northeast (ENE). If you could drive a straight line from Mooresville to White House, with an average speed<3>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take just over a day to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 34 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 24 days.
  • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,464 miles [10,402.8 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>

Footnotes ...

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

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

- 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 Mooresville 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 313.848 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 309.752 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 309.916 degrees.
