Or more accurately, we Virginians got 14 of them. That’s what remains in Virginia to mark where the DC property line used to be – 14 of the 40 boundary stones laid out in the late 18th century to indicate the perimeter of the District. I’ve commented in the past how interesting I find all the markers about historical locations so you shouldn’t be at all surprised to hear how cool I think this is.
I love this website. It covers a neat subject and it’s an example of effective design. A nice google maps mashup of the locations, pictures, descriptions, and nothing more than is needed. The only thing it’s missing is credit – who are you, stone tracker?
