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

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Bruce and extending to:

  • View Our List ...

    • Edmonton, which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 55 miles [88.5 km]<2> to the west northwest (WNW). If you could walk a straight line from Bruce to Edmonton, with an average speed<4> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<2> per hour, it would take most of three days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<2> per hour would take over two days.

    • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON) is 1,710 miles [2,752 km]<2> to the east (E). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km]<2> per hour, would take most of three days, a buggy would take 67 days and walking would take 98 days.

    • The shortest distance<5> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,243 miles [10,047.1 km]<2> and it lies to the north northeast (NNE).<6>

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 Bruce, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Bruce) 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 Bruce. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bruce

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bruce. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 53.2361, Longitude: -112.2702     [Map].
<3>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer as a placeholder. As we find more information about that community, it will be added to our Gazetteer.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Bruce 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 . 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 - we're working to straighten it all out.
<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.
<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 Bruce to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 332.826 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 333.601 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 320.396 degrees.
