Southold Town has across the length of the town granite milestones. For many years, a legend about the markers was widely and enthusiastically, believed to be the history of the stones. The story was that Benjamin Franklin came to Southold, in 1755, and personally set up (or over saw) the installation of the milestones. If you don’t see the milestone right away in the google map picture try rotating the view!
