1905 U.S. Population Center

Nashville was the Center of U.S. Population in 1905, according to a bronze plaque next to the entrance to the Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

[EggDropErin, 05/04/2015]

1905. Nashville, Indiana. The opportunities seemed limitless. What's weird about this claim is that the US Census determines the mean population center every TEN years, 1900 and 1910, but not 1905! What's Nashville trying to pull?
