How Far From Lyndonville 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 village such as Lyndonville to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Saint Johnsbury, which is the Seat of Caledonia County, lies just to the South.
  • Montpelier, which is the State Capital of Vermont, lies 34 miles [54.7 km]<1> to the west southwest (WSW). If you could walk a straight line from Lyndonville to Montpelier, with an average speed<4> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of two days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take just about two full days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 467 miles [751.6 km] to the southwest (SW). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take most of a day, a buggy would take 19 days and walking would take 27 days.

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Lyndonville) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Lyndonville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.5352, Longitude: -72.0017       In this case, the coordinates for Lyndonville have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
