The Blazed Locust Tree
I haven't been blogging that much lately, in part because my wife and I are in the process of buying a new house. The house was built in 1810, and the property is in a pretty rural area. The property description includes these gems: "BEGINNING at a point immediately southeast of a white oak tree . . . thence by same, South 60 degrees East, 278.25 feet, more or less, to a blazed locust tree . . ." We're having a survey done . . .

Congrats on the house, Ben -- but be careful what you wish for! Sometimes ambiguity about property boundaries is what preserves friendly neighbor relations! Sometimes I think that's precisely why those old descriptions survive.
