Few People Know That The Final Marker Of The Original Mason-Dixon Line Can Be Found Along This West Virginia Loop Trail
Ever heard of the Mason-Dixon line? We’re pretty sure most of us have, but here’s what you may not know: even after four years of trying, Mason and Dixon failed to complete the line they set out intending to finish. Instead, they placed their last marker on Brown’s Hill in West Virginia, and another team finished the line more than a decade later.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
