Went out today while visiting reletives in Madson. Found it rather easy I think it is on private proptery only 11 feet though it is a good condition for being over 50 years ago. Well good luck to those who go looking for it.

Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1934 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
01/01/1951 by NGS (GOOD)
DESCRIBED BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1951 AT MADISON. ALONG THE ABANDONED MISSOURI PACIFIC RAILROAD WHERE IT RAN PARALLEL TO THE ATCHISON, TOPEKA AND SANTA FE RAILROAD TRACKS, 115 FEET SOUTHWEST OF THE CENTER OF THE ATCHISON, TOPEKA AND SANTA FE RAILROAD TRACKS, 115 FEET SOUTHWEST OF THE CENTER OF THE ATCHISON, TOPEKA AND SANTA FE RAILROAD, 107 FEET EAST OF THE EAST CURB OF MULBERRY STREET AND 11 FEET SOUTH OF THE SOUTH CURB OF LINCOLN AVENUE. THE DISK IS SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST, PROJECTING 8 INCHES.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (g = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
