This range marker has to be one of the most unusual stations we've ever found! Apparently these markers were constructed in pairs to allow for sighting along a line and thereby locating points along the international boundary. We didn't search for the smaller (front) marker—I'm not even sure if it still exists or where it might be, but I don't think it's in the NGS database. After exploring "downtown" Eastport during the morning, we climbed Battery Hill behind the elementary school and walked right up to this station, a huge white pyramid. We took a series of photos of the east-facing side of the pyramid before walking around to the southwest-facing side and realizing that this was the side we should have been documenting! The southwest face is painted red and into the center is embedded a plaque that reads: UNITED STATES — RANGE MARK NO. 8 RANGING INTERNATIONAL BOUNDARY COURSE 1-2 — TREATY OF 1908.
