  1. No, it's not HT1627, although that benchmark is missing. The high school flagpole, originally about 1/2 mi from my house, was moved to a nearby park when the school was torn down in the late 1980s. I went looking for that benchmark yesterday, but it looks like the flagpole was set into a new foundation. I went looking for HT1628 as well, but didn't try too hard, as that one is along an active railway that is closely patrolled for trespassers. It's even farther from my house than HT1627. The benchmark in front of my house is set into a concrete sidewalk right next to the curb. The house was built in 1920 by one of the early settlers to the neighborhood. I doubt there were concrete sidewalks and curbs on this street in 1920, but they were probably installed by the 1950s. There is little reason to believe that the benchmark has been moved within the past 50 years, since the house is in its original condition and the street has not been widened.
  2. The benchmark is at 37:23:25 N, 122:04:29 W.
  3. Sorry if this is a FAQ... There's a benchmark in front of my house that says "U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey Bench Mark" but it has no numbers, PIDs or other identifying marks. I couldn't find an entry for it in the NGS database. Here's a photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/eswierk/26688943/ Is this in fact a benchmark, and if so, how would I go about reporting it? --Ed
