04-Aug-2000 -- We drove west from Lancaster, PA on an overcast day to find the 40N 77W confluence near East Berlin, in York County, PA. As we approached the town, we observed several historic buildings including an old mill on the National Historic Registry (photo #4). East Berlin was named after Berlin, Germany (photo #6). The town of East Berlin (photo #5) is a small, rural town located about 12 miles west of York, PA (a former capital of the United States). We drove 4.5 miles north of East Berlin on route 194 as our GPS receiver got ever closer to our goal.

The confluence is located behind a house, in a heavily wooded area thick with poison ivy (photo #1). The tree line allowed us to get within 1.8 seconds latitude of our goal (photo #3).
