Contiguous Geographic Center of the United States of America, Lebanon – Kansas Tuesdays September 17, 2019

As I try to spread out Kansas Tuesdays to different parts of Kansas, I chose Smith County, in the north, for this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post. There are a few different things listed for Smith County, mostly in the area around Smith Center. I went with an unusual choice – Contiguous Geographic Center of the United States of America, Lebanon – Kansas Tuesdays September 17, 2019. I am not sure how much I will find in my searching, but it may get interesting. Found more than I expected.

From the Kansas Travel website: http://www.kansastravel.org/geographicalcenter.htm

There really isn’t very much to see or do at the Geographical Center of the United States, but if you are passing through the area on US highways 36 or 281, it is worth driving the short distance from Lebanon. Sign the guest register and read some of the notes from previous visitors. If you think to plan ahead, bring along some toys or other small gifts for the people who follow you.
