Commercialappeal.com: LITTLE ROCK -- Anyone looking for the Zero Milestone that was dedicated at the Arkansas Capitol in 1932 will have to look down the street.
A display at the Capitol depicts the history of land surveying, mixing modern and antique instruments with reproductions of maps of various ages and photographs to give a brief history of the craft and its place in Arkansas history of the last 200 years.
The exhibit by the secretary of state's office opened in conjunction with the June 16 rededication of the Zero Milestone, which is now a couple of blocks from the Capitol at Woodlane and 7th Avenue.
