This stone is located near the intersection of Western Avenue and Fessenden Street NW, at the border between Washington, D.C., and Chevy Chase, Maryland. This boundary stone is generally in a residential area, characterized by single-family homes and tree-lined streets. The stone itself is often enclosed in a protective iron fence to safeguard it from vandalism or accidental damage, serving as a historic touchpoint amid the suburban landscape. It marks the boundary line where the District of Columbia ends and the state of Maryland begins, and it's a fascinating piece of history tucked away in an everyday setting.
