The mail box at the site contained information leaflets. The bronze plaque displays the following information:
THE CORNER COMMON TO NEBRASKA AND KANSAS ON THE COLORADO LINE
The survey of the base line of the 6th principal meridian, which also marks the boundary between Nebraska and Kansas, was extended from the Alma, Nebraska area to the summit of the Rocky Mountains by Jarret Todd and James Withrow in 1859.
In 1869 Oliver N. Caffee [sic] surveyed the western boundary of Nebraska, and failing to locate the baseline, set the limestone monument 621.7 feet South of this position.
In 1872 John J. Majors surveyed the boundary between Kansas and Colorado, commencing at Chaffee's monument.
On June 15, 1873 Edwin Burwell intersected the baseline with Chaffee's state line and established the corner of Nebraska and Kansas on the Colorado line.
On October 17, 1990 the Bureau of Land Management re-monumented this tri-state corner.
In recognition of those early Surveyors, the skills they demonstrated and the hardships they endured, we dedicate this Plaque on June 1, 1991.
