As previously mentioned on this site Albert White is probably the foremost expert on the Initial Points of the United States. His book is the "bible" researching all of the available field notes, history and then personally visiting each site where possible.

At this site along with a few others there are no relics of the original markers and re-monumenting has not occurred.  Mr White states in his book that this Iron pipe was near the monument but the principal meridian was not found.
