Sun Shines Everywhere 11953

Juanita Matsuoka and Ed Lane hold the Alameda Sun over the Mason-Dixon line and a “crownstone” marker, first placed in the 1760s, to mark the colonial boundary between Maryland and Delaware. The line was named for its surveyors Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon. The stone is located in the center of the small town of Marydel, Md., or Marydel, Del., if you prefer. The stone is one of the few remaining limestone blocks, called crownstones, that the surveyors placed to define the border.
