We recovered this station a year later than we could have. I recall noticing it when we first visited Fort Point last year and entertaining the thought that it might be an NGS station. Why I didn't take a photo of it then, just in case, I don't know. But this year I was prepared.
The station consists of a red daybeacon atop a tapered stone base. It is listed in Special Publication #46: Geodesy: Triangulation in Maine, by Walter F. Reynolds (1918). The publication indicates that observations on the beacon were taken in 1911.
A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:
Recovered in apparent good condition.
