Billboard in Cadott, Wisconsin.

Halfway Between Equator and North Pole

Field review by the editors.

Cadott, Wisconsin

A big billboard in Cadott's town park lets travelers know that they are at a spot exactly the same distance from the North Pole as it is from the Equator. Except that the actual location of the 45 Parallel is an inconvenient 3 miles north of town, as the sign admits in tiny type, like a legal disclaimer.

Still, the billboard -- erected by the local Lions club -- is a screaming nice acknowledgment of the Half Way North point. It's more than most towns are willing to do these days (except for Tilden, a billboard copycat a little further west along the line).
