How Far From New Bohemia to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers, Almanacs & Directories that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as New Bohemia to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

    • Richmond, which is the State Capital of Virginia, lies 25 miles [40.2 km]<1> to the north northwest (NNW). If you could walk a straight line from New Bohemia to Richmond, with an average speed<4> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take just about two full days to make the trip.

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- New Bohemia) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in New Bohemia. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.1838, Longitude: -77.3203       In this case, the coordinates for New Bohemia 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're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<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 New Bohemia 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 308.148 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 303.472 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 305.47 degrees.
