In U.S. government land measures, how large is a "section" and how large is a "township"?
A "section" is a mile square, or 640 acres (259 hectares). A "township" is 36 sections, or 6 miles square. In many areas of the United States, particularly in the western states where the land was laid out by the government, the terms township and section are usually used in the land title description in order to describe a property's location.
