in U.S. Historic Survey Stones and Monuments

Some objects become so commonplace, we don't even notice them anymore. This was the case with this marker. The boundary marker in the woodline caught my eye, and I only noticed the one in plais sight after stopping to take pictures of the first.

Designation of this marker as the first is purely arbitrary. I saw it in the woodline as I was pulling into Linear Park. I only noticed a second marker hidden in plain sight after I stopped to take pictures.
