The location of the marker for the site is located besides a four-lane busy road with heavy traffic. The areas on either side of the monument are used as turn-offs, parking, and turn around. Recent placement of large rocks should help to protect the area somewhat. Landscaping that was put in place in place at the rededication in 2003 has been stolen. Roadside trash tends to accumulate around the spot. The site was improved substantially in 2003 with concrete work, landscaping and replacement of a bronze plaque attached to the monument.
