Roadside Milestone 1690
Photograph - Photography
This is a milestone from the original highway between Boston, Massachusetts and Portsmouth, NH. The road was built beginning in 1690. The route followed some of what is now Route 1A from Beverly, Ma to Rowley, Ma. From Rowley the road meanders over back roads, though private property, through the campus of Governor Dummer Academy and across parts of the Great Marsh. There are only few of these stones left. This stone is 35 miles from "B" (Boston) The stones are 1.1 mile apart each mile from Central St @ US RT 1 North to Green St @ Hanover St, Newbury, Ma.
