The Delaware Forest Trail That Holds A Long Forgotten Secret Of The 1760s

Back in the late 1700s, landowners in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania were struggling to agree on the boundaries between their properties, and their states. Finally, they got fed up, and hired two surveyors to mark the lines. These two men, Jeremiah Dixon and Charles Mason, became more famous than anyone could have possibly guessed. Few people know about these ruins in the Delaware woods that are older than our country itself.
