Never forgetting the great state of Alaska, lets keep this in the lower 48 states.
The Northernmost Point in the continuous 48 States is: Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota. Citing again from Wikipedia:
Lake of the Woods County is a county located in the U.S. state of Minnesota. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,045. Its county seat is Baudette. The county contains the Northwest Angle, the northernmost point of the Lower 48 States, and includes the U.S. portion of Lake of the Woods, shared with Canada. The county also includes the enclave of Elm Point. Since Alaska has no counties, Lake of the Woods is the northernmost county in the United States.
While looking for a more inspiring photo for the post, I did run across this note: Northern most point: Between Bear and Harrison Creeks 49°22′35″N 95°08′56″W
Still looking for a great photo and ran across a Real Estate site LandsofMinnesota.com and currently there is an 80 acre parcel in the county for sale, for $56,000!Appears to be more for hunting that housing. Great pic of a cabin so I hope you catch it before they take down the listing.

Did you know there was a famous, or semi-famous, Southermost Point marker in the US?
The city of Key West, FL claims the honor, however, according to an article on Wikipedia:
The wording is not accurate. Florida’s official southernmost point is Ballast Key, a privately owned island south and west of Key West. Signs on that island strictly prohibit unauthorized visitors. The marker is not even the southernmost point of Key West Island. The private yard directly to the southeast of the buoy is obviously farther south. Land on the Truman Annex property just west-southwest of the buoy is the true southernmost point on the island, (approximately 900 feet (270 m) farther south), but it has no marker since it is U.S. Navy property and cannot be entered by civilian tourists. The southernmost part of Key West Island accessible to civilians is the beach area of Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park at approximately 24.545142 N, 81.80964 W, and approximately 500 feet (150 m) farther south than the marker.
The claim on the buoy stating “90 miles to Cuba” is a rounded number, since Cuba, at its closest point is 94 statute (81 nautical) miles due south.
