In 1795 Andrew Ellicott and General William Irvine commissioned by the State, arrived in the area to survey and lay out "a town to be called Erie." Using the southeast corner of the old French fort at the foot of Parade Street as a starting point they placed this stone which has since been known as the "Erie Stone." The town was laid out in three sections each one mile square extending from the bay south to Twelfth Street. A plot of land in the center of each section was to be reserved for public use - Central Park or Perry Square being the first one.
