The 1913 and 1915 Primary Traverse Stations were placed in Nemaha and Richardson counties in southeast Nebraska as primary control points during the topographic quad sheet mapping for quad sheets Howe (1915); Falls City (1915); and Humboldt (1916). The 1913 traverse had 25 stations, while the 1915 traverse had 15 stations. Searches were made on January 16, 2012, and January 21, 2013, with every location searched. Below are those monuments that are still existing today.
