In 1910 a point atop a hill in the southeast corner of Osborne County in what was then known as Meade's Ranch was selected by U.S. Geodetic Survey as the center point for its grid of survey dots and lines across the nation. In 1927 both Canada and Mexico attached their grids to this point as well, and it received the official name as the North American Datum. More commonly called the Geodetic Center of North America, all surveys and deeds on the continent originate from this point. This unique site was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. It is currently on private property. A replica of the marker, located 18 miles southeast of Osborne, can be found beneath the State Historical Marker in Osborne's Roadside Park at the junction of Highways 24 and 281. Open daily dawn to dusk.
