Few People Know This Small Town In Kansas Is The Halfway Point Of The Contiguous 48 States

There are a surprising number of ways you can divide up the United States into two. One method is to take the 48 contiguous states (this method excludes the distant Hawaii and Alaska) and find the halfway point of those. When measured by that technique, the halfway point of the United States is in… you guessed it, Kansas! The little town of Lebanon is so small it’s barely a blip on a map, but it’s got the honor of being the Halfway Point of the Contiguous 48 States.

Have you visited Lebanon, and were you aware of its claim to fame as the center of the contiguous states?
