Long Description:
This mark has no agency stamping, just a designation. The Glenview description reads:

"In 'Glenview': About 0.2 miles west and 200 feet south of the northeast corner of Section 27 T42N R12E. About 0.6 miles north-northwest from the intersection of Johns Dr. and Chestnut Ave. The station is a GPS monument with the access cover flush with the ground."

The mark no longer has an access cover or pipe sleeve. It is under the dirt, right by an arrow on the pavement pointing to it. It is south of the Glen Metra station. Note that the map in the database publication is no longer correct - Johns Dr continues north and is a through street, unlike the map.
