KC-57: Originally Installed in 1997.


In 1989, a curious seventh-grader from the Caesar Rodney School District asked where the center of Delaware was located. With the help of his teacher and the Kent County Department of Planning, it was determined that the geographic center of the state was located approximately eleven miles south of Dover in the field just south of this marker, on the Killen Farm.


















Location: S. side of Rt. 12 (Midstate Road), 1.2 miles East of intersection of Route 12 (Midstate Rd) and Chimney Hill Road Felton, DE 19943
