Lebanon Things to Do
Geographic Center of the 48 Contiguous...
Lebanon the town has little to attract you there; but just outside town is a little park denoting the geographic center of the 48 contiguous staes of the United States. This is an interesting curio to see and to be able to say you were there. The park is kinda nice and relaxing.Related to:

Center of the US
Geographic Center of the Contiguous United States is located just north and west of Lebanon, KS, adjacent to a pasture and overseen by a friendly-if-nonplussed herd of cows. The Center is a small grass patch containing a 10 ft. high stone podium and flagpole, on which U.S. and Kansas flags fly. A small plaque on the podium informs visitors that a government geographic survey in 1898(?) established this spot as the center of the continental U.S. A picnic table allows you to contemplate the the equilibrium of your surroundings. Nearby is a tiny hut, the Chapel at the Center, which invites you to pray (a bible is provided at the altar). Souvenirs are available back down the road in the town of Lebanon.
