County Road Marker.

Re: Mystery Marker

There used to be many of these markers along county roads – they have disappeared; either stolen, fallen over or removed by the county road crew.

I believe they’re from depression time or perhaps the 40′s. They are not survey markers to monument a section corner. They had the county road no. on them and also a contract number for construction or maintenance.

This is what I have been told over the years.

Thanks, Joe. That seems to be the consensus.
