Fort Sill Boundary Survey USACE Tulsa District

  1. 1. CONTINENTAL MAPPING www.continentalmapping.com 888.815.3327 PROJECT PROFILE: USACE Tulsa District Boundary Survey THE STORY: After the Civil War, American military focus shifted to the immense task of settling the west. In early 1869, Major General Phil Sheridan staked out a patch of land deep in Indian Territory that would become Fort Sill. At the time, Oklahoma was virtually off limits to settlement and would not become a state for another 38 years. Fast forward almost 150 years, and the Army’s Fort Sill is stronger than ever at a sprawling 323,760 square miles. Fort Sill is consid- ered one of the premier training facilities in the military, tasked with training the best artillery soldiers in the world. Fort Sill has grown regularly through the years, but formal tracking of the fort’s real estate holdings had not kept pace. Prior to the project, the most recent boundary survey was performed by the Army in 1936. This meant that in 2014, approximately 25% of the fort’s boundary was missing from the official record. Additionally, a roadway realignment completed several decades prior had never been surveyed. That roadway, as seen above, cuts right through the fort and the adjacent Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. On top of that, encroachments and inferior security fencing in remote sections of the base dictated the need for boundary survey. Continental Mapping was tasked by the US Army Corps of Engineers to perform 75 miles of boundary surveying at Fort Sill. Work has included site investigation, land records research, coordination with local, state and federal agencies, establishing monuments and signs at every corner, and delivering a final survey for recordation at the county courthouse. The survey research proved to be a significant task involving many historical documents, some dating back to the late 1800s, describing the history of Fort Sill’s boundary. At that time, the boundary was marked by four stones at each corner of the property. Continental Mapping is using all available sources to accurately retrace the boundary including resurvey information from the Bureau of Land Management and US Army as well as local surveys.
