Plat of one corner of the development. Want to watch the real-estate churn again? OK. We're looking at Section 10, Township 13 North, Range 4 West, Indian Meridian. The northeast quarter was homesteaded by Walter Sitlington, who received a patent in 1897 and whose son held the land until 1991, when he signed a memorandum of agreement to option it to OPUBCO, the Oklahoma Publishing Company. The agreement covered the northwest quarter, too, because it had been patented to James Ingal in 1895 but sold in 1898 to Sylvester McKee for $800, again in 1901 for $1,600, and finally to Walter Sitlington in 1919 for $6,000. The option was apparently exercised, because the land was willed by Sitlington to the Oklahoma State University Foundation, which sold it to OPUBCO. The southeast quarter was meanwhile patented to Thomas Meeker, who went on to acquire the southwest quarter, which had been patented in 1900 to Sue Profitt and sold in 1901 for $2,950, again that year for $3,500, in 1905 for $5000, again in 1905 (and again for $5000), in 1907 for $6,000, and finally in 1916 to Meeker. The whole south half was inherited by Naomi Meeker Roberts of New York City, who sold it in 1973 to the Midland Building Company, which in 1979 sold it to OPUBCO for $1,430,000.
