Description of HighPoint: The HighPoint is in the vicinity of a large TV Tower and could be the site of the house. The tower is marked "American Tower Site # 213, 1-800-621-0501". The house is 1985 Fields Road. The back of the "Road Closed to Thru Traffic" was marked "Highest Point in AA county" with an arrow using a "permanent" marker by the author in July 1998. There are a few other smaller 300ft areas close-by but this seems to have the highest probability.
