Mason-Dixon 250 Celebration Reminder
This year marks the 250th anniversary of the Mason-Dixon Line survey, which was surveyed between 1763 and 1767. We hope you’ll consider joining us in Mason-Dixon Historical Park, October 13-15, for the Mason-Dixon 250 Celebration!
The celebration of the 250th anniversary is a free event and includes historical re-enactments, an arts and crafts show, speakers, music, food, hikes up Brown’s Hill to the 1883 monument set where Mason and Dixon placed their final marker, and more. This is a great opportunity to get out in the community and help introduce the importance of surveying to the public.
The Mason-Dixon line was established to end a boundary dispute between the British colonies of Maryland and Pennsylvania/Delaware and is still a demarcation line among four U.S. states, forming part of the borders of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia.
