Every deed, parcel, and legal land document in the State of Indiana is tied into the original survey performed in the early years of settlement. Section corners were set to mark each square mile of the State. In order to prevent gaps and overlaps of land ownership it is of the upmost importance that these markers are maintained. The County Surveyor’s Office does not conduct individual private land surveys.
