Oklahoma Certified Corner Monuments

Since 1978, the State Archives has been home to corner monument records filed by surveyors from across Oklahoma. Currently, over 230,000 corner records are on file.

The corner monument records do not include personal property surveys. Land ownership is a county record. See the County Clerk’s office for more information.

Original survey plats and field notes are available online through the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management’s Federal Land Records Site.
