Formerly located along Southern Avenue a few feet southeast of the
merger with Naylor Road (and not at the intersection of Naylor Road
and Suitland Parkway, as some earlier sources state).
When a truck knocked the stone out of place during the mid-1980s,
the manager of a nearby apartment building moved the
stone into the building's boiler room for safekeeping. In 1991, the
building manager gave the stone to the bicentennial resurveying team, who,
in 2012, transferred the stone to the D.C. Office of the Surveyor.
Although nothing remains to mark this stone, it eventually will be
reset on the same side of Southern Avenue close to
the crosswalk at the Naylor Road intersection.
