“A piece of history”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This is an original marker from the survey of the Mason-Dixon Line between Maryland and Delaware (at that time part of Pennsylvania). Nothing fancy about the site, but much nicer on site than locked away in a museum. Right by the Fenwick Lighthouse.

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

A pleasant surprise. We did not know how the border between Delaware (originally Pennsylvania) Was created. Very interesting historically. You don't have to worry about whether it is open or closed. You can view it anytime!!

“In front of Fenwick Lighthouse”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

The marker sits under this plaque in front of the Fenwick Lighthouse, basically in the sidewalk. Not an interesting setting, but so much better here where it means something, rather than in a museum. As a remnant of a time before the Ocean City strip became such an ugly place, its worth a drive by.
