This is one of many stones used to mark the "corner" points on the boundary lines between towns in Massachusetts, in this case, the Town of Hamilton and the Town of Ipswich. The letters "H" (for Hamilton) and "I" (for Ipswich) are inscribed on opposite sides. It is approximately eight inches square and two feet high. At some point in the past, an orange stripe was painted around the top of the marker. Although weathered, some portions of this paint can still be seen.
The marker is located on the east side of Sagamore Street, about 1.7 miles from Route 22, and 1.0 miles from Route 133. It is near the side of the road, but just behind an electrified fence. It is on private property
, but is easily viewable from public land.
Note that this is a Witness Monument (WM)
. The actual town line corner is an unmarked point five feet east of the stone marker.
The next adjacent marker heading east is Essex-Hamilton-Ipswich
, 0.3 miles.
The next adjacent marker heading south is Hamilton-Ipswich 2
, 0.3 miles. Note that the town line to this next marker is not a straight line, but rather follows the east side of Sagamore Street.
