This unique, land locked park designates
the spot where all township, range and section
measurements begin for the entire state of Michigan.
The original surveys started from East and West and
closed on this spot. Well, not actually. They did not close
by about 100 feet in the N-S direction so there are actually
two monuments 100 feet apart. The park is not accessible to
the public, but according to the DNR, is being preserved for
its historic value.
We would like to see it accessible to the public for its
historic value to us, the citizens. We need make sure all
interested parties have access to this one-of-a-kind
