The location of Page









Introduction ...

Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Page.

This page contains seven sections:

Outdoor Activities ...

As we travel, we like to pursue some of our interests (such as astronomy and bird watching).

When in Page, we use the following websites to find information relevant to Page and the surrounding area.

Weather ...

Before heading outdoors, you should check the weather:

The National Weather Service forecast for Page and surrounding area.

Astronomy ...

Whether using binoculars, a small telescope or the naked-eye, the Heavens-Above website can help amateurs find their way around the night-time sky. In addition to detailed sky charts, their website lists the visible planets, asteriods, comets, satellites and their track across the sky.

To give accurate results, Heavens-Above requires the latitude and longitude of your location. As a starting point, when we link to Heavens-Above, we pass the location for Page. Once you're on the Heavens-Above website, you can improve accuracy by giving a more precise longitude and latitude for your actual position.

Bird Watching ...

We enjoy finding new spots for bird watching and we use the eBird website to find local sighting reports and hotspots.

The eBird website is organized on a county-by-county basis. We have selected Holt County as the starting point when you click on the link below:

The Holt County sighting report from eBird.

Since Page is near Knox County and also Antelope County, we have provided a link to their eBird sighting reports:

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

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

  • O'Neill [Map], which is the Seat of Holt County, lies 12 miles [19.3 km] to the West Northwest. If you could walk a straight line from Page to O'Neill, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take five to six hours to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take nearly four hours.
  • Lincoln [Map], which is the State Capital of Nebraska, lies 140 miles [225.3 km] to the Southeast (SE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than three hours, a buggy would take 6 days and walking would take 8 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 1,142 miles [1,837.9 km] to the East (E). Driving would take over two days, a buggy would take 45 days and walking would take 65 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Page) 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 Page. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Page

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Page. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.3998, Longitude: -98.4172     [Map].

<2>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

<3>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 Page to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 321.905 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 319.967 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 314.017 degrees.

<7>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 Page 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.

- Return to Citation

<8>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 Page, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
