Hasn't changed in 20 years! Wild game, fish and fowl still scramble to evade the heart-shaped cross hairs of McClusky.

Geographic Center sign and heart.

Geographic Center of North Dakota

In honor of its location near the geographical center of ND, McClusky ND has erected a monument that would make Valentine, NE eat its heart out. In a park in the middle of town, they have set two large cane-shaped steel beams in cement to form a giant heart.

Just makes me wonder, as the geographical center of North Dakota, the town of McClusky must truly be in the "Middle of Nowhere."
