1. Original Federal Boundary Stone Northeast 7 Marker
Inscription. Placed in 1791-1792, this is one of forty Aquia Creek sandstone markers outlining the original boundaries of the Federal District as commissioned by President Washington. In 1916, The District of Columbia Daughters of the American Revolution installed a protective cage in an effort to preserve this historical landmark. Continuing its legacy of preservation, in 2012 the district of Columbia Daughters restored the boundary stone and refurbished the protective cage using the original iron.
