The North-South line between the colonies of Maryland and Pennsylvania, now Delaware, was surveyed between June and September 1764 by Charles Mason, an astronomer, and Jeremiah Dixon, a mathematician and surveyor.
Leading a party of thirty-nine, Mason and Dixon measured off the line, planting waist high limestone markers at one mile intervals, returning later to place these crownstone markers every five miles.

I Saw The Marker

Stone is there. Lots of weeds, just behind marker. Surrounded by geological markers.
