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

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers and using the location of where the historic<1> community of Trammell once stood, the straight-line distance<2> beginning in Trammell to:

  • Bentonville [Map], which is the Seat of Benton County, lies 14 miles [22.5 km] to the East Northeast. If you could walk a straight line from Trammell to Bentonville, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of a day 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 [Map], which is the State Capital of Arkansas, lies 164 miles [263.9 km] to the Southeast (SE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take about three hours, a buggy would take 7 days and walking would take 10 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 969 miles [1,559.5 km] to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving would take most of two days, a buggy would take 38 days and walking would take 55 days.

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 Trammell, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance beginning in Trammell. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Trammell) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Trammell. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.2945, Longitude: -94.4708     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Trammell have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<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.

- Return to Citation

<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 Trammell 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 318.757 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 315.551 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 313.109 degrees.
