U.S. Population Center 2000 Sign

Field review by the editors.

Edgar Springs, Missouri

The tiny town of Edgar Springs doesn't have much of a population, but what little it has was surrounded, equally, on all sides, by 200+ million other Americans for the first decade of the 21st century. An official green highway sign preserves those ten years for posterity, particularly for those who don't have time to turn off the road to see the actual center spot.
