Despite the fact that this bench mark was reported found in 2005, it still felt like a long shot to me. I typically don't have high hopes for marks near old railroad tracks, especially when they're set in concrete posts. But Rich and I were pleased to see that a small park now exists at this site, and we were absolutely thrilled when we noticed the mark as the centerpiece of a small landscaped bed. It has the appearance of an enthroned queen! The disk is in excellent condition, and the post still projects about six inches and has received a coat of red paint sometime in the past few years. "Wow," Rich kept saying, "I can't get over that!"
Recovered in good condition. The surrounding area is now a small park. The monument is situated in a landscaped flower bed. (Also reported projecting, at a height of 4 inches.)
