Benchmarks may be on private property or in dangerous locations. Obey local laws. By using the services on Geocaching.com you agree to this disclaimer.

Haven't looked into many benchmarks in our new hometown until now! Made the find although we got stopped by local police asking what we were doing, haha explained in minor detail and we were sent on our way!

Found with Harry and Andy

Found with Harry and Circles. We allow Harry a little time to hunt benchmarks.

Found easily by description. Much more fun driving from Charleston to St. Augustine on Rte 17 than on I-95!

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (g = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
