I call this 'fake' because the sign is misleading. The farm house just beyond the sign is still in Vermont, and not Canada. The border station can be seen in the distance. The actual boundary runs through that building.

That is unusual to have this sign (I assume it is on US soil) before the border announcing you are entering QC.

One interesting about the "border station" is that both Canadian and US officials share the same building. Usually, you have one building just south of the border for US officials and a second one, just north of the border, for the Canadian officials.

Yes, I found out that they share the station because they both nearly arrested me for crossing over at the other end of Line Road!

This is not fake. i just drove through here earlier today from Burlington on my way up to Monteral. It is a tiny country road with farms all around.

Alpha, please see my first comment. The sign in the photo indicates that you're entering Canada, but you don't actually cross the border until 1000 feet up the road.

They put the sign in advance so people don't end up at the border by accident.
