A Brief History Of Alabama Land Surveying
The land now known as the State of Alabama played a huge role in the early surveys of the New World dating back to colonial times, having been at one time or another been associated with the British Province of Carolina, the British Province of West Florida, the Spanish colony of Florida and the US Mississippi Territory. The 31st Parallel has been surveyed numerous times as the southern border of Alabama (not including the Gulf Coast), first as the southern border of the Carolina Colony established by King Charles II, then as the border between the new United States and the Spanish territory of Florida as commissioned by George Washington and surveyed by Major Andrew Ellicott from 1798-1800. (The Ellicott Stone remains today as a monument of that survey). The 31st Parallel today serves as the border between the states of Alabama and Florida.
Alabama Land Surveying Today
Today, land surveyors continue to play an important role in Alabama’s development. Because of the long history of land surveying in Alabama, many surveys conducted today are known as “retracement” surveys, in which a modern surveyor retraces previous surveys to determine the pre-established boundaries of a plot of land. Land surveyors in Alabama must follow strict requirements, in part to prevent such land disputes that required so many surveys in Alabama’s past. All surveyors must certify that their maps, plats, and drawings are completed in accordance with the current Standards of Practice for Surveying in the State of Alabama.
