DC’s Central Point

Have you ever wondered what was the geographic center of DC? Where you could stand and be equal distant from all the borders? Did you assume that was under the Capitol Dome, where the four quadrants intersect?

I have to admit, I never thought of it, maybe because I have a life, but apparently others have. Real geography nerds who count borders and markers. Guys like Andrew Wiseman who took the time recently to discern the exact geographic center of Washington now, and as originally designed.

Where are those two points, the pre-and post-annexation of Arlington by NoVA geographic centers of DC, you might ask? Well check out his post so I guess I am a geography nerd to find out.
