How Far From Lake Tansi Village 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 Lake Tansi Village to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Crossville, which is the Seat of Cumberland County, lies just to the North Northeast.
  • Nashville, which is the State Capital of Tennessee, lies 98 miles [157.7 km]<1> to the West Northwest (WNW). If you could drive a straight line from Lake Tansi Village to Nashville, with an average speed<3>of 63 miles [101.4 km]<1> per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<1> per hour would take 6 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<1> per hour would take three full days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 486 miles [782.1 km]<1> to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving would take most of a day, a buggy would take 19 days and walking would take 28 days.
  • The shortest distance<4> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,368 miles [10,248.3 km]<1> and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba ) is 7,081 miles [11,395.8 km]<1> and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

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 things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Lake Tansi Village) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Lake Tansi Village. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Lake Tansi Village

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Lake Tansi Village. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.8717, Longitude: -85.0547     [Map].
<2>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.
<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.
<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 Lake Tansi Village to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 312.727 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 308.522 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 309.03 degrees.
