Public invited to historical marker dedicationJuly 12, 2018
From Local Sources
HAYSVILLE — State and local officials will be on hand Saturday to dedicate a state marker designating the starting point of the survey system designed to divide and organize land on a grid.
Buckingham’s Base Line historical marker will be dedicated at 1 p.m. at the marker, which is located on U.S. 231 one-tenth of a mile south of Haysville.
A marker used to be in the area, but was removed years ago after being damaged in a traffic accident.
Buckingham’s Base Line historical marker commemorates the primary east-west survey line run by Surveyor Ebenezer Buckingham Jr. in 1804. This allowed for accurate land location descriptions, which is important for claiming and purchasing land.
The public is invited to attend the dedication, at which County Surveyor Ken Brosmer and a representative of the Indiana Historical Bureau will speak. Attendees are encouraged to carpool, since there are very few parking spaces in the area. Attendees are also asked to be cautious in the area, since the dedication is along the busy U.S. 231.
Members of the Buckingham’s Base Line Historical Marker Committee will be available for conversations at the Haysville Sommerfest after the dedication. The fest is at Haysville Park, 7210 N. Haysville Park St.
