More about this marker. This
I am assuming that like most of the other markers of this particular series, that the original building that this marker was attached to is now gone and that the marker was preserved by being attached to the structure built on top of the site of the original building. I am also of the belief that this marker, like the other markers in this series, was originally an outdoor maker.
Presently the maker is located on the outside of the building entrance, but is in an area that is covered by a structure built to serve as a parking garage. Because I could not get a GPS reading next to the marker, the co-ordinates that I provided were taken from just outside of the Broad Street entrance to the parking structure.
