This place with a monument and a plaque and a tiny church building is a fun stop while driving through rural Kansas. We met a Grandmother with two grandkids who we had seen at Cawker City at the twine ball, so they were following same...More

This was a quaint little spot to stop on our way through Kansas. Neat to see this little bit of nostalgic Americana. Even a chapel to get married at!

From the town of Lebanon you travel just a few minutes to get to the center. There’s a small chapel, a monument, and a board where you can put up a piece of paper with your name, date, and hometown. It was a ton of...More

Nothing extravagant but it’s a nice little stop and perfect little day trip adventure. Love the little church as well. The town is small and gift shop wasn’t open when we went around Saturday afternoon but got a picture in the town jail cells and...More

There is nothing here but the geographic center of the US. It is much like going to four cornens, you can say your were there.

Worth a stop if you’re traveling through but not worth a major detour. We stopped for lunch and to stretch our legs. Nice rural landscape. We had both species of meadowlarks and a pair of loggerhead shrikes here (we’re birders).

This was an unexpected stop on a long road trip back to Nebraska. It's unique and well maintained. Souvenirs are located downtown in the market.

There is some controversy as to the "exact" location but it is close enough for me. It is at the end of a lonely road but plenty of plaques and photo ops to make it a fun stop. We were driving from Florida to Utah...More

This is an interesting stop at the end of the road. It is not the exact center of the continental US but that is in someone's field so they made a monument here. It's a great place to stretch your legs and say that you...More

This geographical center place is a fun stop to say you have been here and have the photo to prove it. That is about all, though. We went out of our way to find this, but we like to find something quirky on our trips....More

Yes, the road circles round it so you can easily get back on the road and head out.

If you have the time for the detour, I would. It’s fun. But you likely won’t spend more than 20 minutes there. And there are no restroom facilities, just FYI. One option might be to get some food to-go and do a picnic lunch... More
