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

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

  • Janesville, which is the Seat of Rock County, lies 14 miles [22.5 km]<1> to the East. If you could walk a straight line from Spring Valley to Janesville, with an average speed<5> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<1> per hour, it would take most of a day to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<1> per hour would take four to five hours.
  • Madison, which is the State Capital of Wisconsin, lies 29 miles [46.7 km]<1> to the North (N). The buggy would take just over a day and walking would take just about two full days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 691 miles [1,112.1 km]<1> to the East Southeast (ESE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km]<1> per hour, would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 27 days and walking would take 40 days.
  • The shortest distance<6> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,205 miles [9,986 km]<1> and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<7>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba ) is 6,948 miles [11,181.7 km]<1> and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<8>

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Spring Valley. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.6583, Longitude: -89.3084     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Spring Valley have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer as a placeholder. As we find more information about that community, it will be added to our Gazetteer.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Spring Valley could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<3>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Spring Valley, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<4>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<5>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.
<6>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 Spring Valley to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 315.555 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 312.718 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 309.185 degrees.
