Around Skansen there are several old stone mile markers.  Some of these date back to the 1600’s.  Some are a little younger (1700’s).

Mile markersWhat I think is most amazing about these mile markers is that they have held up so well.  They’ve been through wars, people touching them, and an array of weather and yet these markers are still readable and in pretty good shape.

Mile markersMaybe our modern transportation people could learn a lesson from our forefathers about how to build something that lasts and requires little to no maintenance to maintain.
