Walk in the footsteps of history as we commemorate the 250th anniversary of the ending of the Mason-Dixon survey in October, 1767!

Mason and Dixon were in this area from Oct. 8 to Oct. 20, 1767, and they set their last marker on The Line on top of Brown's Hill in what today is Mason-Dixon Historical Park.

The celebration of the 250th anniversary will focus on the Mason-Dixon Line between West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Special guests will includes descendants of Jeremiah Dixon. There will be a colorful quilt show in the park's log cabins, a quality arts and crafts sale, food, music, astronomy and more.

Visit the newly installed Third Crossing of Dunkard Creek Recreational Area, where local stones placed in the ground allow visitors to stand exactly on the Mason-Dixon Line. Hike to the top of Brown's Hill to the stone monument set in 1883 resurvey at the spot of Mason and Dixon's last marker.
