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

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

  • Newport [Map], which is the Seat of Jackson County, lies just to the West Northwest.
  • Little Rock [Map], which is the State Capital of Arkansas, lies 87 miles [140 km] to the Southwest (SW). If you could drive a straight line from Stegall to Little Rock, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 5 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of three days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 806 miles [1,297.1 km] to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 32 days and walking would take 46 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,623 miles [10,658.7 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>
