Long Description:
This benchmark is different than any other that I have seen. It is placed in a different way as well.

The benchmark is located at the foot of the Hilliard Lyons Building (formerly the Citizen's Bank Building) near the front door. It is in the sidewalk just where the wall meets the ground.

The benchmark is from the US Weather Bureau instead of the more common US Coast and Geodetic Survey.
