How Far From Casa to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a town such as Casa to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Perryville, which is the Seat of Perry County, lies 13 miles [20.9 km]<1> to the east. If you could walk a straight line from Casa to Perryville, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take 6 hours to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take four to five hours.
  • Little Rock, which is the State Capital of Arkansas, lies 48 miles [77.2 km] to the east southeast (ESE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than an hour, a buggy would take most of two days and walking would take about three full days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 921 miles [1,482.2 km] to the east northeast (ENE). Driving would take most of two days, a buggy would take 36 days and walking would take 53 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Casa) 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 Casa. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from CasaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Casa. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.0254, Longitude: -93.0449       In this case, the coordinates for Casa have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<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.
<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 Casa to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 317.706 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 314.163 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 312.666 degrees.
