Geographical Center of United States, Lebanon, KS

036

Well, it’s actually the center of the 48 contiguous states, as verified by the 1918 U.S. National Geodetic Survey. Located about 12 miles south of the Kansas-Nebraska border, a marker, picnic shelter, and small chapel are pretty much the only things in this rural area other than gently rolling hills. The marker is about a half-mile from the actual center, which is located on private farm land. Visited October 2015.

Location: Northwest of town on Route 191 (at “T” with AA Road), three miles north of Route 36 and and one mile west of Route 281.
