Description

A Souvenir of Lebanon Kansas.
7 1/8" plate with monument pictured along with the Latitude and Longitude. Made in Japan.
Gold trim and lattice work around edge. Original nylon string attached to the back through two holes.

Center of Everything! If you have a weird sense of humor like I do let me pass this plate on to you!

I believe the "Historical Geographical Center of the U.S.A. refers to the fact that after Alaska and Hawaii were added it was no longer the geographical center. Only center of the 48 states.

On our way from Michigan to view the mighty western vistas for the first time in 1963, my father stopped the '55 Chevy in Lebanon Kansas. It marked the Geographic Center of the United States. He was very impressed to be there and Mom bought this plate. We 4 kids were happy to get out of the car as Dad tended to drive from early morning to dark. Years later I saw a play, "Leaving Iowa" about a young man who traveled with his Dad's ashes looking for the perfect spot to leave them and he ended up at this tourist attraction which they had visited during a family vacation!
