Alright, so here it is.
The geographic center of Texas
or at least the public marker for the center.
The actual point is somewhere on private property
beyond these fences, but this is as close
as us members of the public can get.
So, I know what you're thinking,
I mean, Texas is so oddly shaped,
how do you find the center of it?
Well, you leave the hard work
to the Texas Society of Professional Surveyors.
But, it's really easy what they did.
I mean, they just took Texas divided it
into four co-equal parts, took those parts
measured circumference and radial distance
and to the points of the compass rose,
took that compass laid it on top
of old Mayan star charts with the early work
of Aristotle and, of course, the Magna Carta
created a distance.
I don't know what I'm talking about.
I was just hoping maybe by standing close
to the center of Texas I would like
turn into George Strait or something.
I don't feel any different, do I look any different?
- No, it's still you.
- Alright, back in the truck.
So, metaphysically speaking, nothing happens
at the heart of Texas, unfortunately,
but tripperifically speaking,
it's still a must stop destination.
