Ganuman, you are one amazing benchmarker. Incredible job with this website.

Hello! Been benchmarking for a couple of years, and really enjoying it, it's one of my favorite excuses to get outdoors! While my focus is primarily in New Hampshire, I have done some hunting in the Middlesex County area also, where I work. Great job you're doing with this site, keep up the good work!

Nice website you have put together! We apparently share many similar interest as I too search for MHD controls but have much more fun recently locating town corners.
Just an fyi: You may want to do a little research into LX4113 Buttermilk. While the plaque in the picture on your site indicates that it is the oldest surviving triangulation station, the NGS datasheet indicates that it was monumented in 1833. I have recovered at least 2 triangulation stations in MA that were monumented in 1832: MZ1614 Mount Lincoln and MZ1504 Hawes Hill. While I am far from an expert, I do believe that all horizontal controls in this period had to be establish via triangulation. I believe that the two stations I mentioned were part of the original 'trigonometrical survey' in MA that was started in 1830. In any case, these old marks have very interesting histories that we are now part of!
