About the Office

The Land Ordinance of 1785, as adopted by the Continental Congress, signaled the commencement of the Rectangular Public Land Survey System as a means of dividing federally-owned land for transfer of ownership to the public.  After the United States granted title to a parcel of land, jurisdiction over that land passed to the state.  Where the lands were in private ownership, it became a function of county or local surveyors to restore lost corners and subdivide the sections.  The Indiana Constitution of 1851 as amended in 1852 officially established the Office of County Surveyor as an elected office.  The length of the term of office was set at four years, but unlike many other county offices, there is no limit to the number of terms that may be served.
