Is the four corners accurate? Is Four Corners Monument Accurate? Yes and no! The monument’s location is not where it was originally intended to be, but it’s current placement has been accepted as the official point where the borders of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico meet. So it really does meet at the real “four corners”.
What states compromised the four corners? The Four Corners Monument marks the quadripoint in the Southwestern United States where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah meet.
Did the four corners move? Due to their slight misalignment and questionable accuracy, it was estimated that the monument’s correct placement should in fact have been about two and a half miles from where it sits currently. However, it was later revealed that the original surveyors only just missed where the four corners should have been.
What is unique about the Four Corners? The only spot in the U.S. where four states converge on a single point, the monument is interesting if only for its simplicity. At its center is a small aluminum-bronze plate that pinpoints the exact spot where the boundaries touch.
