USGS Geodetic Monument

This is a U.S. Department of Interior, Geological Survey Agency Geodetic monument. It is located in the SE corner of Section  18, Twp-11-N, Range-4-E. which is 1-mile west and 2-miles south of Garland, NE. It is at the edge of the road right-of-way and the shelterbelt. It is on the corner of the farm that we owned during the 1980’s, During my earlier days with the Soil Conservation Service surveying Watershed Dams, we would run “levels” from such monuments to the Dam sites, since they were all designed to the elevation above sea level. I no longer have access to the location and elevation of the monuments in Seward County but do have an SCS General Soils Map of the area that shows this elevation as 1580. If anyone reading this has access to the USGS Maps showing elevations, I would appreciate their confirming or correcting the level.
