It appears to me that this marker has been relocated on the grounds of this very same park. The GPS co-ordinates provided in 2008 look to have it situated somewhere midway between the John B. Gordon Hall building and the street. When I visited these same grounds in the summer of 2014, this marker was situated very near the front northwest corner of the John B. Gordon Hall building.
