Metrics of Darr's plat

The following language appeared in Conrad Darr's original application to the court of Butler County, Ohio.

When Conrad Darr platted Darrtown, he used a unit of measurement known as a "pole" - which is 16.5 feet in length.

Therefore, each in-lot in Darrtown measures:

> 12 poles (198 ft.) in length - from east to west

> 6 poles (99 ft.) in width - from north to south


"Darr's town is laid off in the South West corner of Section numbered twenty eight in township numbered five of Range number two East of the Meridian line drawn from the mouth on the great Miami River in the county of Butler and State of Ohio.

The course of Main street is North thirty minutes West the course of Oxford Street is North eighty nine degrees and thirty minutes East, all the other streets and alleys are parallel to one or of said Streets, the streets are each three (poles-16.5 ft. ea.) in width, except Main street and Oxford Street, which are four poles wide, the alleys are each one pole wide.
