Long Description:
At the Bunker Hill Monument (actually on Breed's Hill, and in itself a NGS mark [MY2916]). After reading the logs for MY2916, they described an interesting situation - the monument itself has eight disks embedded in it itself! The individuals who logged them have loaded pictures of the configuration. A visit to the site confirms their existence, although one appears to be under a coat of paint. Note: the coordinates given are that of the monument itself. It seemed more sensible to waymark them as a group instead of separately, and those coordinates are equidistant from each disk.
