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

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

  • View Our List ...

    • Juneau, which is the State Capital of Alaska, lies 207 miles [333.1 km]<1> to the north northwest (NNW). If you could drive a straight line from Hadley to Juneau, with an average speed<4>of 63 miles [101.4 km]<1> per hour, it would take a little over three hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<1> per hour would take 12 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<1> per hour would take 8 days.

    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 2,745 miles [4,417.6 km]<1> to the east (E). Driving would take 6 days, a buggy would take 108 days and walking would take 156 days.

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hadley. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 55.5347, Longitude: -132.2867       In this case, the coordinates for Hadley have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>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 Rock Creek to see Pete ... Rock Creek 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 Hadley 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.
<3>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 Hadley, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<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 Hadley 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 349.409 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 352.474 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 333.95 degrees.
