It’s a stone and interesting historical marker. The novelty of it was standing in 2 states at once. Cute picture of the kids and nice stop if you’re in the area looking for something to do.

If you get a chance to stop at the Fenwick Island Lighthouse, be sure to check out the Transpeninsular Marker, located just next to it. It's an interesting bit of history and marks the boundary between the states.

Discovered this checking out the Fenwick Island Lighthouse. Interesting history spelled out on signage there. Kids enjoyed being able to take selfie saying they were standing in two states at once.

The Transpeninsular Marker is located on the south side of the prominent Fenwick Island Lighthouse. The marker, itself, is the easternmost of a series of similar markers placed in the 1750s to mark the state boundary between Delaware and Maryland. There is a bit of...More

This object is a rare find, as it is part of the Mason-Dixon line that forms Delaware's western border. It is located directly in front of the Fenwick Island Lighthouse, and is clearly visible from the street. It is in remarkably good condition, and clearly...More

April 26, 1751. That is the date that this marker was erected. That is history! This stone marker and sign are situated at the base of the Fenwick Lighthouse. They are easy to miss IF you are not looking for them. The marker was part...More

Self guided tour and near lighthouse! Great for those interested in history. Very unobtrusive marker, easy to miss if you are looking for it.
