the Angle Tree monument is, or what
it stands for, and though it is in this

here who never heard of it. Yet there
was a time when it marked the bound
ary between the two pioneer common
wealths of America, the Plymouth and
Massachusetts Day colonies.
Here stood two centuries ago a tree
that the surveyors of the original
Plymouth-Massachusetts Bay bound
ary in 1664 thought a good mark for a
"station" in their lino of survey., A
it, therefore, they ended a long,
straight line they had drawn across
what is now southeastern Massachu
setts, from Accord pond, at a point in
the boundaries of the towns of ling
ham, Norwell and Rockland. The pond
doubtless was named to conmemor.ate
an agreement on the boundary.
The line was 27.35 miles long, fro'm
the pond to the angle tree, and its di
rection was west, 20.5 degrees south.
From the tree it extended due west
less than a mile to the Rhode Island
border. From- the pond its eastern
continuation was to the sea, along the
boundary between the towns of Co
hasset and Scituate. Here was the
"frontier" of Plymouth colony.
The tree selected as a mark b$y the
surveyors in 1664, after their long and
slow march through swamp and forest
must have been conspicuous among

Trho passing of nearly a century and
