First Principal Meridian Marker

The 1st Principal Meridian Marker
This video is about one of my all time favorite historic sites. Very few people have seen it yet thousands drive past it each week. It has had an impact on tens of thousands of people in western Hamilton County and southeastern Indiana yet most people really don't know anything about it. At some point in time your property has been surveyed and it is because of this marker that your survey was able to be completed.
The  1st  Principal  Meridian  Marker

The  First  Principal  Meridian  Marker  has  a  fascinating  history  that  very  few  people  know  about.  This  is  one  of  3  State  line  markers  along  the  Ohio/Indiana  border.  Three  weeks  after  we  produced  this  video,  the  marker  was  knocked  down  by  a  passing  truck.  Although  the  marker  wasn’t  damaged,  when  the  road  crew  was  up righting  the  marker,  it  cracked  in  half  and  is  now  in  storage  at  a  Hamilton  County  maintenance  garage.
