Pay a visit to the 45 x 90 Geographical Marker site and join the official 45 x 90 Club. This unique spot is halfway between the Equator and the North Pole, a quarter of the way around the planet, and halfway between Greenwich Meridian and the International Date Line.

Proclaimed "The Center of the Northwestern World" in the early 1970's, the site was renovated in September of 2017 and includes a crushed gravel pathway lined with woods and a corn field, that leads visitors to the marker, approximately 1,000 ft from the road. A new bronze marker has been placed on the exact intersection of 45 x 90. 

To become a member of the Official 45 x 90 Club, pay a visit to the marker (21 miles west of Wausau), then stop at the Wausau/Central Wisconsin Convention & Visitors (Visitor Center) at 219 Jefferson Street in downtown Wausau. Upon signing the official Club Book, you will receive a quality two-sided coin as your member token. 

DIRECTIONS: 1.4 miles into the small town of Poniatowski. Turn left at the stop sign (west) and travel .5 miles to the aptly named Meridian Road. Turn right (north) and .3 miles later, you’ll find the entrance to the marker on the right side.
