The Rugbeian, Aug 19, 1882 (Rugby, Morgan Co., Tenn) * Center of Population *
The Center of population in the United States was twenty-two miles from Baltimore in 1790, and has moved westward at the rate of about fifty one miles every decade, never deviating to the extent of a degree north or south of the thirty ninth parallel. The greatest progress was between the years 1850-60, when it traveled eighty one miles from a point in Virginia to twenty miles south of Chillicothe, Ohio. The movement was caused by the settlement of the Pacific coast. The center of population in 1870 was forty-eight miles north-east of Cincinnati. According to the last census the center has advanced westward fifty-eight miles and deflected to the south about eight, being near the village of Taylorsville, Ky., about eight miles from Cincinnati. It is estimated that the next census will find it in Jennings County, Indiana. Supposing the westward movement of population to continue, the central point should cross the Mississippi about 1950, not far from the mouth of the Missouri. It is considered probably, however, that it will never go so far westward, as there are large areas in the West which are only adapted fro mining and grazing pursuits, and will support but a scanty population. The increase in the region beyond the Mississippi, after the close of the present century, may not much more than counterbalance that of the rest of the country, in which case the center of population will remain almost stationary in southern Illinois. - Macon Telegraph.
