How Far From Casa Blanca 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 Casa Blanca 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<5> community of Casa Blanca once stood, the straight-line distance beginning in Casa Blanca and extending to:

    • Nogales, which is the Seat of Santa Cruz County and lies 21 miles [33.8 km]<1> to the southwest. If you could walk a straight line from Casa Blanca to Nogales, with an average speed<6> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take just over a day to make the trip.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Casa Blanca) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Casa Blanca. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Casa Blanca

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Casa Blanca. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.5972, Longitude: -110.7191    
<2>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 Casa Blanca 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.
<3>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.
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>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 Casa Blanca, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<6>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.
<7>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 Blanca to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 329.797 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 328.113 degrees.
<10>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 321.465 degrees.
