An exhibit in Lebanon, Kansas (center of the contiguous continental United States):
THE CENTERS OF THE USA
Open indefinately starting August 14, 2010
The Centers of the USA, produced by the Institute of Marking and Measuring and the CLUI, is now open to visitors.
A CLUI Exhibit Unit, temporarily installed at the center of the contiguous continental United States, north of Lebanon, Kansas, contains an exhibit which depicts and describes several of the "Centers" of the United States, such as the geodetic center, in Lucas, Kansas; the geographic center, near Belle Fourche, South Dakota; and the current population center, in Edgar Springs, Missouri.
This project is part of the CLUI Lines of Site thematic program, an ongoing series of presentations about surveying, cartographic lines, perimeters, and borders. It was made possible with the support of the Salina Art Center, Creative Capital, the Hub Club of Lebanon, KS, and the Institute of Marking and Measuring (IMAM).
