Rugby, ND has held the official (-ish) title of geographical center of North America since 1931. They sell t-shirts and mugs with that title. They have a "Miss Geographic Center" beauty pageant. Their fall fair is called Geographical Center Day. But the mayor of nearby Robinson, ND didn't think their claim was good enough—and after a night of drinking, he and some buddies decided to declare that their town was the true geographical center. Actually, not just their town—their bar. This all sounds extremely and totally legit, we agree. Bill Bender is both the mayor and co-owner of Hanson's bar (nothing fishy about this bar at the exact center of the continent, nope), which now sells its own t-shirts to that effect (so legit). They even stole the expired U.S. patent from Rugby.
