(visited by Ross Finlayson)

23-May-2018 -- While driving from the Saint Louis area towards Indianapolis, I made a detour to visit this ‘forgotten’ Degree Confluence Point that had been visited only once before - more than 18 years ago. It’s hard to understand why this point hadn’t been visited at all since then, because it’s astonishingly easy (albeit a bit boring). The point lies in a (currently-fallow) corn field, just 0.1 miles East of a rural road (and just 240 feet North of a railroad track).
