GLO-Monument

This monument was placed by the United States General Land Office in 1948 during a survey of the islands in the Wisconsin River near its confluence with the Mississippi River. It is located along the North bank of the Wisconsin River. It is a "meander corner" which means the true corner of the Section falls in the river and could not placed at it's true location, but on a line to it's true location.

Nice Scott!  And a great picture too!  Makes me look forward to cooler weather and downed leaves!

This was a great find for a land surveyor (me) who was following in the footsteps of those who came before him.  Locating and fixing a position in Latitude / Longitude, and on the local coordinate system was instrumental in completing a survey for a client with riparian rights.
