Located just south of Maryland Route 410, or the East-West Highway, the North Corner Boundary Stone marks the northern most point of the District of Columbia.

 

The North Corner Boundary Stone is right at the edge of the woods. A circular fence surrounds the stone.

As you get to the fence, you can see the detail of this original monument. You can see the year 1792 on the stone. In addition, Maryland and Jurisdiction of the United States are also inscribed on the marker. Not bad for something 225 years old!

Be careful crossing East-West Highway if crossing the road. If approaching from the east, look around at the tree line, the marker is nearby.

 

About 14.142 miles to the south is the South Corner Boundary Stone. That monument marked the southern most point of the District of Columbia before retrocession.
