Long Description:
A distance and direction arrows signpost can be found at an intersection one block north of Route 202 in China, Maine. It lists 10 small town, big name places in the state.

A square post about twelve feet tall is planted a few feet east of Town Landing Road at the northeast side of Village Street where it becomes Legion Memorial Drive and southwest of Jones Road where it transitions to Old Windsor Road. Ten planks are attached, one for each location, on the south side of the post. Painted black triangles form white arrows on the horizontal boards; black text is used for place names and distances. Displayed in ascending mileage, from top to bottom:

  • CHINA 7 MI.
  • POLAND 56 MI.
  • PERU 58 MI
  • NORWAY 63 MI
