The 'geographic center' has the large stone monument and plaque and I have been there a few times while passing through Kansas. There is a huge amount of disinformation on the net confusing this with Meades Ranch. The two have virtually nothing to do with each other. The incription on the brass plaque shows a diagram of a tie to a control point from which it was positioned after it's location was computed., I have a few slides of it somewhere.


The following link shows the monument and the plaque, and is typical of sites that come close to associating it incorrectly with Meades Ranch. I see that if you read it carefully it shows the geographic center point but discusses the other as "a few miles away".




Here is another:

There may be a recomputed site for U.S. after Alaska and Hawaii were added...
