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

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

  • View Our List ...
    • Hartford, which is the State Capital of Connecticut, lies 18 miles [29 km]<1> to the west northwest (WNW). If you could walk a straight line from Hebron to Hartford, with an average speed<8> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take just over a day to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take five to six hours.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 311 miles [500.5 km] to the southwest (SW). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take five to six hours, a buggy would take 13 days and walking would take 18 days.
    • The shortest distance<9> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 5,586 miles [8,989.8 km] and it lies to the northeast (NE).<10>
    • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba ) is 6,293 miles [10,127.6 km] and it lies to the east northeast (ENE).<11>
    • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican) is 4,169 miles [6,709.4 km] and it lies to the east northeast (ENE).<12>

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 obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Hebron) 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 Hebron. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Hebron

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hebron. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.6590, Longitude: -72.3631    
<2>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 Hebron, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<3>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 Rock Creek to see Pete ... Rock Creek 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 Hebron 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.
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>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.
<6>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<7>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<8>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.
<9>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 Hebron to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<10>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 304.853 degrees.
<11>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 300.442 degrees.
<12>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 301.502 degrees.
