Bean Team is correct in that you can find it from the description, but it's around the corner from the published coordinates.

Found as described.

The Scaled coordinates put it some distance away around the corner and across the street but the description is adequate to locate the mark.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.) The vertical order pertains to the superseded datum.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
