Our Laws are significantly differant than other states. As stated above based on Napoleonic code rather than British. Drives Lawyers mad when crossing state lines.

First thing that comes to mind is the 7 year fence law, if you have a fence around property (or claim to) the property becomes yours; a lot like a common law marriage. My family got screwed by that one when I was young.
We have something similar here, called the acquisitive prescription, it's 15 years for immovable property. If you live peaceably on a on a property for 15 years, so basically no one ever told you to move out, you can claim rights to it in court.
