Last updated

The six tripoints of Oklahoma are:

8 Mile Corner

8 Mile Corner is a monument in the Cimarron National Grassland dedicated to the tri-point of Kansas, Colorado, and Oklahoma. This point is also the meeting point for three distinct regions of America - the Western United States (Colorado), Midwestern United States (Kansas), and South Central United States (Oklahoma). The landmark is a windmill with the three states' abbreviated names on the blades. The windmill monument was built in 1903. In 1990, satellite images showed the actual meeting place to be several feet away from the monument. A brass plate in the ground marks this. The site is approximately 8 miles (13 km) west of Elkhart, Kansas on mostly unpaved State Line Road.

Kansas State of the United States of America

Kansas is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States. Its capital is Topeka and its largest city is Wichita, with its most populated county being Johnson County. Kansas is bordered by Nebraska on the north; Missouri on the east; Oklahoma on the south; and Colorado on the west. Kansas is named after the Kansas River, which in turn was named after the Kansa Native Americans who lived along it banks. The tribe's name is often said to mean "people of the (south) wind" although this was probably not the term's original meaning. For thousands of years, what is now Kansas was home to numerous and diverse Native American tribes. Tribes in the eastern part of the state generally lived in villages along the river valleys. Tribes in the western part of the state were semi-nomadic and hunted large herds of bison.

Colorado State of the United States of America

Colorado is a state of the Western United States encompassing most of the southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains.

Tri-state area is an informal term in the eastern contiguous United States for any of several regions associated with a particular town or metropolis that, with adjacent suburbs, lies across three states. Some of these involve a state boundary tripoint. Other tri-state areas have a more diffuse population that shares a connected economy and geography—especially with respect to geology, botany, or climate—such as the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. The term "tri-state area" often occurs in movies and radio and television commercials.
