How Far From Bourne Brook 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 Bourne Brook to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Montpelier [Map], which is the State Capital of Vermont, lies 79 miles [127.1 km] to the North Northeast (NNE). If you could drive a straight line from Bourne Brook to Montpelier, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 5 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of three days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 360 miles [579.4 km] to the Southwest (SW). Driving would take 6 hours, a buggy would take 14 days and walking would take 21 days.
