Preliminary estimate, Missouri land in public ownership, 1974-1976
It is impossible to determine the amount of land in public ownership in Missouri, though this information is often sought. The Missouri State Library cites public land questions among inquiries most frequently received and least frequently answered, since the information does not exist. This publication is an attempt to assemble and correlate from literally hundreds of separate sources such data as can be found. Some, itemized below, were not attempted. Some of the data are approximations, these being all that are available. There may well be errors and omissions, and the reporting of these would be appreciated. The time gap in figures (1974-1976) was retained since no official figures of later date were available.
