Long Description:
This mark has no agency stamping, just a designation. According to the Glenview writeup:

"A 'GPS' monument on the E side of Shermer Road, bewond [sic] the sidewalk, approximately 0.2 mi S of Raymond Drive, and just N to the entrance to Borden & Co. (Northbrook). 7.41' E-ly of the centerline of the sidewalk, 31.47' W-ly of a '+' cut in the N side of the concrete base to a sign, and 15.01' NW-ly of a '+' cut at the end of the straight curb on the N side of Borden's driveway."

This description is still good, expect that Borden is now Highland Baking Co.
