  • If your in the area or passing through, it's definitely worth the stop. Not a high traffic area and pretty easy to find. A tiny church, a monument and a few photo opportunities.  more »
  • Ok, so last year we made it to North Dakota for the Geographic Center of North America, then we put this on the list of places we need to visit.  more »
  • What an amazing gem! My 10 year old was impressed with the concept and checked it off his list. I checked in on Facebook to hopefully inspire others!
  • What's not to adore, it's the geographic center of the contiguous states. Not far out of the way if you're travelling 36 and has some cool things to check out, aside from feeling like the center of the world!
