Half Way North - 45th Parallel Marker

Field review by the editors.

Menominee, Michigan

The Half Way North Marker in Menominee, Michigan is barely acknowledged on US Highway 41, and there's no convenient place to pull off for a look. But this is one of a few spots graced with a monument along the estimated path of the 45th Parallel by Frank E. Noyes in 1938. There's another marker in Beaver, Wisconsin and Peshtigo, Wisconsin.
