Introduction ...

Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Steiner.

This page contains four sections:

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

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Steiner to:

  • Montgomery [Map], which is the Seat of Montgomery County, lies just to the West Southwest.
  • Montgomery [Map], which is the State Capital of Alabama, lies just to the West Southwest (WSW).
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 686 miles [1,104 km] to the Northeast (NE). If you could drive a straight line from Steiner to White House, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take just about two full days to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 39 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 27 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,584 miles [10,595.9 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 7,286 miles [11,725.7 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,165 miles [8,312.3 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Steiner. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.3504, Longitude: -86.2608     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Steiner have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<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 Steiner 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 angle) to Mecca is 308.666 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<8>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
