Preservation Pop Quiz
Now that I’ve noticed these on the side of the road, I can’t stop noticing them. Maybe it’s an obvious feature to many, but it took me a while to realize what it is. What is your guess? And how often do you notice these?

a hitching post for horse??
Boundary or right-of-way marker.
what was attached? one above and one below…
is it granite? I think concrete would be spalled.
I think that was probably a marker that the highway department used to mark the start or end of a construction project. The writing is probably long gone, but it might have been painted with the project number and name.
Oh it’s a concrete fence post. It’s always amazing that they could be formed up so thin with such large aggregate.
My other guess was that it held a USPS Owen’s style mail box.
Oh, good guess. But, nope, sorry. Maybe I’ll post another picture later for another clue before revealing the answer. I originally thought road marker like everyone else!
More pictures would be good! hm this seems like a real tricky one, but I bet it’ll be a forehead slapper when you tell us. 🙂
Sorry all, no one has guessed it yet. That or all of these items are interchangeable and recyclable. Stay tuned.
