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

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

  • View Our List ...
    • Kingstree, which is the Seat of Williamsburg County and lies 22 miles [35.4 km]<2> to the west southwest. If you could walk a straight line from Hemingway to Kingstree, with an average speed<4> 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 most of a day.
    • Columbia, which is the State Capital of South Carolina, lies 92 miles [148.1 km] to the west northwest (WNW). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than two hours, a buggy would take most of three days and walking would take 6 days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 379 miles [609.9 km] to the north northeast (NNE). Driving would take most of a day, a buggy would take 15 days and walking would take 22 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>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 Hemingway 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.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Hemingway) 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 Hemingway. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from HemingwayOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hemingway. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.7535, Longitude: -79.4473    
<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 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.
<5>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 Hemingway to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 309.428 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 304.428 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 307.413 degrees.
