Long Description:
This U.S. Coast and Geodesic Survey benchmark disk is on the west wall of the old Santa Fe Train Depot in Chickasha, Oklahoma. The Depot is now privately owned by the Chickasha Antique Automobile Club, who has taken care to preserve the mark during their renovations of the building. However, the mark is behind a fence and you may need to visit during business hours to see it. The disk, which is stamped E 41 and dated 1934, is worn but still in good condition.
