Eastern Continental Divide

It is grand that Blacksburg has many features.  This sign appeared.  I  saw it only yesterday.  Once, a long time ago, there was a sign marking the Eastern Continental Divide, but, the story I heard, is that the sign was repeatedly stolen.  I am so glad it has been replaced and hope this sign has a long life.

I wonder which side the place where I live is.
