Geographical center of the United States - Belle Forche, SD


Staff member
Our own @dnewton3 suggested to make this one of our stops going through South Dakota on our way to Devil's Tower.

When you look at the map, it's kinda hard to imagine that this is the center of the US, but you've got to account for Alaska. The monument is well done and in a nice city park. There is a visitor's center at the monument, but because of Covid, we didn't go in. If you are passing through, the monument and Belle Force are only 10 miles north of I-90 and it can made as part of your route to Devil's Tower. My take is that it's something you should see once.
