Stand At The Center Of North America In This One Spot In North Dakota
Many people outside of North Dakota would have absolutely no idea that the center of the ENTIRE North American continent, including all of the United States, Mexico, and Canada, lies right in a small town in North Dakota. That town is Rugby, and it is the one that gets to hold the title of the Geographical Center of North America.

She loves small-town life and currently enjoys living on a small farm in the ND prairie.
