Company History

Wetherell Land Surveying has operated under various names and ownership since George Blass founded it in 1941. In 1990, the Michigan Society of Professional Surveyors recognized Blass as Michigan Surveyor of the Past. Blass had an excellent reputation for quality work and left many valuable maps, measurements, and records for our use. When the business passed from Blass to Clinton Cole, Jack Pierson, and Robert Wetherell, the three formed a partnership named Lakestate Surveying. Lakestate Surveying was responsible for many parcel divisions and subdivisions in the surrounding areas, and they completed thousands of survey maps that remain on file in our office. When Robert Wetherell purchased the assets of the business from Clinton Cole, he changed the name to Wetherell Land Surveying. Wetherell had an excellent reputation for quality work and customer service, so when Patrick N. Johnson purchased the business in 2002, he chose to do business as Wetherell Land Surveying LLC. Johnson strives to continue the great reputation for quality work that has been a hallmark of the business since 1941.
