Geographic Center

As part of Arizona’s 2012 Centennial, the Arizona Professional Land Surveyors conducted a study to determine the Geographic Center of Arizona. They concluded it was located just south and east of the confluence of the Verde River and East Verde River. After making the exact determination, the APLS decided to award an official designation of the municipality closest to the center. On April 1, 2012, with a proclamation from the governor in hand, representatives of the APLS held a ceremony at Rezonnico Family Park, officially declaring and bestowing bragging rights as the center of the state to the Town of Camp Verde.
