As such, it is the oldest standing, man-made object on the coast between Indian River Inlet, Delaware and Ocean City Inlet in Maryland and marks Delaware's southern boundary with the State of Maryland. Known as a "crown stone," the monument bears the coat-of-arms of the Calvert family, the Lords Baltimore of Maryland on its south side and those of the Penn family, proprietors of Pennsylvania and "The Three Lower Counties Upon Delaware" on its north side. The South Side of the stone displays the Coat Of Arms of the Lords Baltimore, The Calvert Family of Maryland.
