Long Description:
This triangulation station is located on the highest point of Moffitt Butte. The triangulation station was set by the U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey in 1953.
Moffitt Butte was named for my great grandfather James Moffitt who homesteaded to the west on Long Prairie in 1885. The butte was originally named Moffit Butte (one t) so that is why the station is marked MOFFIT. In the late 60’s the name of the butte was corrected to Moffitt Butte.
