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

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

  • View Our List ...
    • Kemmerer, which is the Seat of Lincoln County and lies just to the South.
    • Cheyenne, which is the State Capital of Wyoming, lies 299 miles [481.2 km]<2> to the east (E). If you could drive a straight line from Frontier to Cheyenne, with an average speed<5>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take five to six hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 17 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 12 days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 1,762 miles [2,835.7 km] to the east (E). Driving would take most of three days, a buggy would take 69 days and walking would take 101 days.
    • The shortest distance<6> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,901 miles [11,106.1 km] and it lies to the north northeast (NNE).<7>

Footnotes ...

<1>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 Frontier 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.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Frontier) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Frontier. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from FrontierOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Frontier. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.8138, Longitude: -110.5352    
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<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 Frontier 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 330.956 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 330.439 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 320.891 degrees.
