Description: “The centre of population is defined as ‘the point at which equilibrium would be reached were the country taken as a plane surface itself, without weight, but capable of sustaining weight, and loaded with its inhabitants in number and position as they are found at the period under considerable, each individual being assumed to be of the same gravity as every other, and consequently to exert pressure on the pivotal point directly proportioned to his distance therefrom.’ In brief, it is the centre of gravity of the population of the country. It is located (1900) six miles southeast of Colimbus, Indiana. &mdash Wark
