How Far From Mimosa Hills 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 community such as Mimosa Hills to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • View Our List ...
    • Hanover, which is the Seat of Hanover County and lies just to the North.
    • Richmond, which is the State Capital of Virginia, lies 10 miles [16.1 km]<1> to the south southwest (SSW). If you could walk a straight line from Mimosa Hills to Richmond, with an average speed<3> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take four to five hours to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take a little over three hours.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 85 miles [136.8 km] to the north northeast (NNE). 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 5 days.

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 from Point A (ie- Mimosa Hills) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Mimosa Hills. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.6821, Longitude: -77.3789       In this case, the coordinates for Mimosa Hills have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>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.
<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 Mimosa Hills 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 308.158 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 303.559 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 305.312 degrees.
