Here is a bit of history about this boundary marker from Missouri Roadsides: The Traveler's Companion By Bill Earngey

"Stacked one on top of the other are state-line markers erected between 1821 and the 1960s. on top, shaped like a headstone, is the original marker with "Mis. 1821" (the date of statehood) on the north side and "Ark. (no date; it was still a territory) on the south. Oklahoma, at the time, was Indian Territory. this stone is reportedly the western survey for the 1820 Missouri Compromise. Below it, a marble pedestal erected by the Ozark Culture Club in 1915 identifies all three states along with their dates of admission to the Union (Ark., 1836; Mo.,1821; Okla., 1907). At the bottom is a 10-foot cement circle with three bronze lines erected by the Lions Club in the 1960s."
