half section

See public land survey system for a full explanation.

Example: A section of land is 1 square mile, being 5,280 feet on each side and containing 640 acres. A half section can be the north or south half, or it can be the east or west half, but it can't be an arbitrary 320 acres somewhere in the middle. A half section would have one side of 5,280 feet and the other side of 2,640 feet.
