Protect Nearby Monument!


“Protect nearby monument.” I looked across the road and thought, “Why are they concerned about this?”


It doesn’t look to me to be in any danger. It’s far enough back from the river it isn’t likely to fall in. Are they worried about vandals? I looked at the sign again and saw the bottom line “Monument is 6 feet No.” Well, that means they aren’t talking about that one. It’s a lot further than 6 feet away and it isn’t anywhere close to north. I look around and about 2 paces north of the sign I see this in the ground.


Finally my brain processes the first part of the sign completely “Protect nearby survey monument.” The stone in the ground for surveyors to use as a reference point. “Monument” made my mind go immediately to something big and grand. Nope. We’re talking about this plain and unassuming stone in the ground.
