As we travel, we like to pursue some of our interests (such as astronomy and bird watching).

When in Springville, we use the following websites to find information relevant to Springville and the surrounding area.

Before heading outdoors, you should check the weather:

The National Weather Service forecast for Springville

Whether using binoculars, a small telescope or the naked-eye, the Heavens-Above website can help amateurs find their way around the night-time sky. In addition to detailed sky charts, their website lists the visible planets, asteriods, comets, satellites and their track across the sky.

To give accurate results, Heavens-Above requires the latitude and longitude of your location. As a starting point, when we link to Heavens-Above, we pass the location for Springville. Once you're on the Heavens-Above website, you can improve accuracy by giving a more precise longitude and latitude for your actual position.

We enjoy finding new spots for bird watching and we use the eBird website to find local sighting reports and hotspots.

The eBird website is organized on a county-by-county basis. We have selected Vernon County as the starting point when you click on the link below:

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

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

  • Viroqua, which is the Seat of Vernon County, lies just to the Southeast.
  • Madison, which is the State Capital of Wisconsin, lies 84 miles [135.2 km]<1> to the East Southeast (ESE). If you could drive a straight line from Springville to Madison, with an average speed<5>of 63 miles [101.4 km]<1> per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km]<1> per hour would take 5 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km]<1> per hour would take most of three days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC) is 789 miles [1,269.8 km]<1> to the East Southeast (ESE). Driving would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 31 days and walking would take 45 days.
  • The shortest distance<6> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,216 miles [10,003.7 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 6,964 miles [11,207.5 km]<1> and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<8>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican) is 4,860 miles [7,821.4 km]<1> and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<9>

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Springville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.5836, Longitude: -90.9399     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Springville 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 Rock Creek to see Pete ... Rock 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 Springville 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 Springville, 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 Springville 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 316.669 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 314.116 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 309.771 degrees.
