Belle Fourche, (pronounced Bel-Foosh), is located in Butte County, is approximately 55 miles Northwest of Rapid City, and 22 miles east of the Wyoming state line. Originally named by French explorers for the flowing together of Belle Fourche, Redwater River and the Hay Creek, this town originally housed farmers, ranchers and miners during the gold rush of 1876. Today it is seen at the entryway to the Northern Black Hills
While it may seem surprising, Belle Fourche is known as the geographic center of the United States. This is possible because the addition of Alaska and Hawaii shifted the overall footprint of the United States. If you visit the marker for the true center of the nation, you will find the Center of the Nation Monument.
