A lot of things have changed since 1924 We were able to get to .4 miles of this one, could see the ridge but it may actually now be on private property. We will see if we can find out whom the owner of the land is and attempt to locate this one.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in August 1993.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.)
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
