Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Sleepy Hollow.

This page contains three sections:

How Far From Sleepy Hollow 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 Sleepy Hollow to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Sleepy Hollow to:

  • Cathlamet [Map], which is the Seat of Wahkiakum County, lies just to the South Southeast.
  • Olympia [Map], which is the State Capital of Washington, lies 58 miles [93.3 km] to the North Northeast (NNE). If you could walk a straight line from Sleepy Hollow to Olympia, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of three days to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take over two days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 2,378 miles [3,827 km] to the East (E). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take 5 days, a buggy would take 93 days and walking would take 136 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,877 miles [11,067.5 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<4>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 7,638 miles [12,292.2 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<5>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,765 miles [9,277.9 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<6>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that starts in Sleepy Hollow. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Sleepy Hollow) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sleepy Hollow. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.2734, Longitude: -123.4524     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Sleepy Hollow have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>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.

- Return to Citation

<3>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 Sleepy Hollow to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
