NGS MONMOUTH RESET, 2000, IL, is a National Geodetic Survey vertical control disk located at the center of the town of Monmouth, IL. The station is located in the southeast quadrant of a large island at the traffic circle intersection of east-west Broadway Avenue and north-south Main Street.
It is 3.0 feet southeast of a flag pole, and 1.5 inches below the lawn surface. It was monumented by a local surveyor in 2000 to replace triangulation station MONMOUTH, PID = LD0444, which has been reported as DESTROYED at the NGS datasheet for that station. To reach the station from the intersection of US Highway 67 (North Main Street) and US Highway 34 at the north edge of Monmouth, go south on North Main Street for 0.90 miles to the island at the intersection with Broadway Ave and the station. This station is in the NGS database as PID = DG5932, but it is not in the Geocaching database. See (visit link) .
