Rugby, North Dakota
This town, often referred to as the geographical centre of North America, is, in fact, about 15 miles from that location. Nevertheless, there is a monument to this unofficial designation in the town. In addition, this location is ideal for viewing the aurora borealis and to that end Rugby has built the Northern Lights Tower and Interpretive Centre, an 88 1/2 foot tall steel structure, completed in 2003. Outdoor enthusiasts will be attracted by the abundant wildlife, also enjoyed by hunters and fishermen. For the golf-mad, there is Rugby Country Club and Golf Course. And at Pioneer Village and Museum, there stands a mannequin wearing the suit of the tallest man in the world, Cliff Thompson, whose height is recorded at 8' 7. The Museum also houses a large taxidermy collection and a miniature replica of the Pillars of the Nation found at Sioux Falls.
