    It is definitely of the 1886 era as indicated by the feather and wedges used to split the granite. My guess is that it is a property marker showing where the deeds of four landowners intersect.

    It could possibly be the boundary lines where four towns come together, but that would most likely have been indicated by rock walls in Maine (the majority being made between 1830-1850). Unorganized townships were generally just marked by notching trees with an axe.


    My bet is on the former.
