At both both sets of coordinates, you will find a memorial to a particular group of people, who you may not often see memorials for, but who you do often see in their line of work. Hopefully, this will lead you to be more aware and mindful of them.
Per Wikipedia: Chesapeake House opened in 1975. Today, Chesapeake House is run by a private corporation. U.S. Federal law prescribes that rest areas on public (toll-free) interstate highways be maintained by the state, however Maryland was able to obtain an exemption, allowing them to commercialize Chesapeake House and Maryland House. This exemption was granted because the service areas were constructed when the John F. Kennedy Memorial Highway was a toll road. Now, Maryland is responsible for the grounds, while the commercial operators absorb the costs of operation. WTOP-FM says that the two commercialized rest-stops bring in $40 million per annum.
