Located at the corner of Western Avenue and Chestnut Street in Bethesda, Maryland, this stone marks the boundary at another point where Washington, D.C., ends and the state of Maryland begins. The area is predominantly residential, featuring well-maintained homes and landscaped yards. Like other boundary stones, Northwest No. 8 is typically surrounded by a protective iron fence to help preserve it. Though situated on the edge of a quiet suburban street, the stone serves as a historical reminder of how the boundaries of the nation's capital were carefully laid out over two centuries ago.
