U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey Benchmark.
At the base of what may have been the breeches buoy tower or the signal mast, a disk is inset into a concrete foundation indicating that the place is a benchmark of the U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey. It is designated No. 5 of 1949. “For elevation write to the director, Washington, D.C. $250 Fine or Imprisonment for Disturbing This Mark.” The National Geodetic Survey has a “Peaked Hill Bars CG Signal Mst” mark, MY3861, in its database, but the latitude and longitude do not coincide with this point, it is described as having been “monumented” in 1933, and “not found” in 2001.
