Long Description:
Placed by the NGS in 1985, the cover for this rod has at times approximately 1 inch of soil covering it due to flash floods involved in the water for the cranberries. It's in very good shape located right at the fence marked by an orange witness post. Find the Cranberry Co sign and follow it to the fence to find the marker. Park on the side of Englewood Road and walk to the mark.
