The actual geographic center of the nation

South Dakota USA

The actual geographic center is located on private property outside of town. Drive north on US Hwy 85 about 13 miles, turn left onto Old Hwy 85 (marked by a small blue sign with white lettering), and drive another 7.8 miles until you see a barn on the left. On the right side of the road is a sign telling you that you have reached the center of the nation. On the pasture there is a US flag and a geographic survey marker that marks the center of the nation. The ranch owner allows visitors to reach this spot, but you will have to climb through a barbed wire fence and dodge cow pies and snakes to get to it. He didn't want a larger monument to be developed on his property, which is why the monument was built in Belle Fourche proper.
