Long Description:
This benchmark is in Parke County, Indiana, on a bridge carrying SR 47 over Sugar Creek, just west of the entrance to Turkey Run State Park. It can be found below the guardrail near the west end of the north side.

Research suggests that this marker was set to replace the NGS Benchmark KA1061, marked T 101 1946, probably during a bridge rebuild.
