Missouri-Oklahoma-Kansas Tristate Marker

Location: where Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas meet near Joplin, Missouri
Date: January 2, 2011

The tri-point of Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas is just off of Interstate 44 at exit 1 near Joplin, Missouri. A short side road goes directly to the point from a road to an Oklahoma casino (although the road starts in Missouri and is mostly in Kansas).

A stone monument marks the location of what was formerly thought to be the tri-point, but the area was resurveyed an a new marker (photo below) was placed about 50 feet from the original one in 2004.
