If you were standing here prior to the Chamizal Treaty of 1963, you would have been on a Mexican "island" looking into the United States. Referred to as Cordova Island because it was completely surrounded by the United States, this parcel of land was given to the U. S. by Mexico in exchange for land to the west.

Cordova Island's original international boundary was defined using evenly spaced cement fence post, and cast iron markers such as the one before you. This 600-pound marker was one of nineteen that identified the Mexico border around Cordova Island.
