Documented History (by the NGS)

01/01/1940 by CGS (MONUMENTED)
DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1940 (RJS) STATION IS LOCATED ON THE NEW YORK-PENNSYLVANIA BOUNDARY LINE ABOUT 5 MILES SOUTHWEST OF DEPOSIT, N.Y. THE ORIGINAL MARK IS A GRANITE POST, 6 BY 12 INCHES AT THE TOP AND 15 INCHES HIGH, THE LETTERS N.Y. ARE CUT IN ON ONE SIDE OF THE POST AND PA. ON THE OTHER SIDE. A STANDARD U.S. COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY DISK STATION MARK WAS CEMENTED IN THE TOP OF THE POST IN 1940. TWO REFERENCE MARKS (NOTE 11A) AND AN AZIMUTH MARK (NOTE 12C) WERE ESTABLISHED. THE AZIMUTH MARK IS 0.4 MILE NORTH OF THE STATION ALONG THE ROAD MENTIONED IN THE DIRECTIONS TO REACH THE STATION. IT IS 50 FEET WEST OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE ROAD AND 200 FEET SOUTH OF A FARM HOUSE. TO REACH THE STATION FROM THE JUNCTION OF STATE HIGHWAYS 8, 10 AND 17 IN DEPOSIT, GO WEST ON STATE HIGHWAY 17 FOR 5.2 MILES TO A DIRT T-ROAD LEFT AT A SHELL SERVICE STATION, TURN LEFT ON DIRT ROAD AND GO 0.2 MILE TO RAILROAD TRACKS, CROSS THE TRACKS AND CONTINUE 2.5 MILES TO A FORK, TAKE RIGHT FORK (MAIN-TRAVELED ROAD) AND GO 1.1 MILES TO CROSS ROAD, TURN RIGHT AND GO 0.7 MILE TO THE STATION ON THE LEFT, 8 PACES FROM THE CENTERLINE OF THE ROAD.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in January 1999.
  • The orthometric height was scaled from a topographic map.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
