Back of Card:
Mason-Dixon Markers on route 467 about 7 mi. west of Delmar (Preserved by Delaware State Society, D.A.R.)
These monuments erected in colonial times mark a decisive point in lines run to settle boundary disputes between the Penn and Calvert families, whose Coats-of-Arms they bear.
The small stone marks the middle point of the Transpeninsular Line run west in 1759 from "Cape Henlopen" - actually Fenwick Island on the Atlantic. The double crownstone installed in 1768 by charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon is a cornerstone and marks the true middle point of the peninsula and the southern end of the north-south line of the Mason-Dixon boundary.
