Travel to U.S.: Oklahoma: A Cross Timbers Threnody: Photo 1
The Indian Meridian in Cleveland County. Along with the Indian Baseline, which it crosses in the Arbuckle Mountains of southern Oklahoma, this line forms the basis for all land surveys in Oklahoma, except for the Panhandle. Much of its length is now secondary road, but this stretch was closed some years ago. If the former road hadn't dug itself into the earth, the oaks would soon obscure, then obliterate, the line. Still, you can't buy a town lot in Oklahoma without a deed that locates the land with reference to the grid created by the Indian Baseline and Meridian. There's unintended irony in the grid's name: after all, the Indian Meridian contributed toward the annihilation of the Indian world.
