Triangulation station "Long Pine" is located in eastern Brown County, Nebraska, just south of the small town of Long Pine on the same hill with the municipal water tower. The survey marker is located just to the northeast of the water tower. Long Pine was once a thriving community because it was a division point on the C&NW Railroad which, however, ceased operations there in 1992.
