This page contains three sections:

How Far From Unionville 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 Unionville 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 Unionville once stood, the straight-line distance<2> beginning in Unionville to:

  • Rison [Map], which is the Seat of Cleveland County, lies just to the South Southeast.
  • Little Rock [Map], which is the State Capital of Arkansas, lies 52 miles [83.7 km] to the North (N). If you could walk a straight line from Unionville to Little Rock, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of three days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take over two days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 906 miles [1,458.1 km] to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take most of two days, a buggy would take 36 days and walking would take 52 days.
  • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,747 miles [10,858.2 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 7,472 miles [12,025 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,348 miles [8,606.8 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<7>

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

- Return to Citation

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Unionville. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.9759, Longitude: -92.1988     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Unionville have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

- Return to Citation

<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 Unionville 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 Jerusalem is 317.064 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 313.278 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 312.466 degrees.

<8>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 Mile's to see Pete ... Mile's 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 Unionville 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 county. 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.
