A little while back I had taken a picture of this marked stone that was built into a resident’s wall surrounding their property one one of the routes that I covered. I thought it looked cool.. Well, now it’s my route. I walk by it every day and I wanted to know more about it so I sent an email to the Yonkers Historical society. I figured it was a mile marker of some point. “19 miles to New York” you can barely make out.
I was curious, how old is it? where did it come from? Where in New York is it 19 miles from? Well, Yonkers Historical Society came through and it turns out its a relic from Pre-Revolutionary American and United States Postal History... #Yonkers #westchester #yonkershistoricalsociety #allaboutthebenjamins
