Uintah Meridian

This is one of 4 "special" meridians used to mark Indian reservations and a very small amount of land (relatively speaking) creating many partial townships and sections.

According to Al White they were not necessary and would have worked just as well off of the existing meridians and methods.

There once was a cap for this point and if it is still in place it is under the highway.

The red painted ring is along the western edge of an unimproved southbound road and just north of the center strip.

On Sept 18, 2009 a new significant historical Monument and IP marker were dedicated at the Uintah Meridian. John Stahl was kind enough to send me photos and text regarding the occasion. Check it out at the bottom of the page.
