See the exhibit Centers of the USA, at the Centers of the USA! A mobile exhibition unit containing the exhibit Centers of the USA, produced by the Institute of Marking and Measuring and the Center for Land Use Interpretation, will be hitting the road on August 8, 2011, to visit a number of the official Centers of the USA.
