Oops!

So I want to know if this changes anyone’s state of legal residence.

Bronson said that given the crude equipment of the era, it’s amazing surveyors were as accurate as they were around the time the marker was established.

And yet the Anasazi, sometime between 500 and 1300 AD, managed to build three settlements separated by 450 miles in this very same desert that were all within 5/8 of a mile (less than one kilometer) from longitude 107º 57′. Doh!

  1. That’s great! Clicking on the link now, though, it mentions that all states have adopted the monument as the intersection of the states. So it’s official! However, that’s a mistake that might well have had interesting implications!
    Thanks for the article!
