6. The Last Stone in Maryland
“Southeast No. 9 Mile Marker - The last stone in Maryland, this has been known in the past as the Fox Ferry Milestone probably because of its location in the Potomac riverbed at Fox's Ferry. It has been submerged in the river several times since the original survey and was moved to higher ground and reset in 1969. However, it has not been determined if the new site marks the actual District-Maryland boundary.” – National Capital Planning Commission, 1976.
From page 26 of Boundary Markers of the Nation’s Capital, A Proposal for Their Preservation and Protection – A National Capital Planning Commission Bicentennial Report. – Summer 1976
