SE Corner
of the
Nebraska Panhandle

(Nebraska - Colorado)

The southeast corner of the Nebraska Panhandle, which is also the northeast corner of Colorado, was established on September 24, 1869, by Oliver N. Chaffee. The location marked by Chaffee was at the intersection of Latitude 41 North with Longitude 25 West (from Washington D.C.). In 1976 the monument was protected by a fence. A brass disk was placed in the top of the original stone in 1978.
