The Indian Meridian is an important marker in Oklahoma geography and history. This marker is the center point from which nearly all land ownership boundaries are based in central Oklahoma. There is actually a road leading south and north from here called “Indian Meridian” and that is the road that is used for land measurements. When I studied to get my Realtor license I learned about how townships and ranges work and how to measure those from this point. I am not sure who built this marker, but it is right on the outskirts of Langston, Oklahoma and sits right in the middle of the road.
