The first public lands to be surveyed in the United States were the “Seven Ranges” located in Eastern Ohio. This was the only land surveyed by government surveyors under the continental congress. The first line surveyed is now called the Geographer’s line. Thomas Hutchins, Chief Geographer of the United States, ran this line from September 23 to October 22, 1785. The line ran due west, 42 miles (the width of Seven Ranges) from the intersection of the Pennsylvania Line with the Ohio River. Townships were numbered north from the Ohio River with sections numbered according to the Land Ordinance of May 20, 1785. Augusta Township’s southern line lies on the northern boundary line of the old Seven Ranges on this geographer’s line. At the time of the survey, this would have been in the Northwest Territory. Congress later decided to divide the Northwest Territory with Ohio being formed in 1803.
