It’s National Surveyors Week!

The history of surveying in America begins in our own back yard. Everyone knows that George Washington was both a founding father of our country and a founding surveyor of Virginia. But did you know that his youngest brother, Charles, had surveying skills of his own and even mapped out the town that took his name? Charles Town (in what is now West Virginia) is a stone’s throw down the pike from Schonstedt’s Kearneysville headquarters, where we continue to develop new surveying tools and technology that the Washington brothers could only dream of.
