This is one of many granite posts used to mark the "corner" points on the boundary lines between towns in Massachusetts, in this case, the Towns of Hamilton and Wenham. It is about nine eight inches thick, two feet wide, and two feet high. The letter "H" (for Hamilton) is painted on one side, and "W" (for Wenham) is on the opposite side.
To reach the marker, first follow the directions to Hamilton-Wenham C
. From the trail at the bottom of the hill below that marker, bushwhack WNW along the old stone wall, and follow your GPS to the marker. It is uphill about 50 feet north of the stone wall. There is a large decaying log just west of the marker.
