Kansas Historical Marker

Geodetic Center Of North America

Kansas State Historical Marker
Osborne County
      On a ranch 18 miles southeast of the marker a bronze plate marks the most important spot on this continent to surveyors and mapmakers. Engraved in the bronze is a cross-mark and on the tiny point where the lines cross depend the surveys of a sixth of the world's surface. This is the Geodetic Center of the United States, the Primary Station for all North American surveys.
