Mason-Dixon Line Western Crossings


Brown's Hill where Mason and Dixon's survey was halted

In October, 1767, Mason and Dixon were told by their Native American companions they could go "not one step farther" westward. On top of a steep hill (trust me, I've been there!), the stone monument set by Cephas Sinclair in 1883 marks where Mason and Dixon's survey (but not their line) ended. The site is just to the south-southwest of Mount Morris, Pa., along Buckeye Road.
