Find it on Google earth for better directions. Follow the Delaware Maryland border, where it hits 90 degrees is where this is.

Being from the south I wanted to see this piece of history while in the area! It was poorly marked and difficult to find. Had to use GPS to Delmar Rd and navigate to the 90* angle.
