Geographical Center of the Contiguous United States

On June 20, 2015, I stood at the Geographical Center of the Contiguous United States.

This wiki page gives details about the geographical center of the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii), and it also includes details about the geographical center of the Contiguous United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii).

On my drive home from a few days of vacation in mid central Colorado, I stopped at this location to muse about standing at the geographical center of the Contiguous United States. I snapped a few photos and signed the guest registry. There is a nice Chapel near the monument.

It’s not too far from US-36 in Lebanon Kansas and worth the stop over if you are in the area. When I stopped by, it was a gorgeous sunny and warm day, a perfect day to stand at the geographical center of the Contiguous United States.

If you are wondering, the geographical center of the United States is located near Belle Fourche, South Dakota. Hopefully, one day, I will stand there.
