KC-69: Originally Installed in 2004.

In 1763, Penn and Calvert commissioners erected milestones along the boundary between Maryland and the Three Lower Counties (Delaware), part of the Mason-Dixon survey. Every five miles they erected elaborate Crown Stones. This stone was displayed in St. Louis in 1904, and later in Baltimore. It was returned to Marydel in 1954 and was reset in 1964.
