The Historical Marker Database: A catalog of public history cast in metal, carved on stone, or embedded in resin
This website is an illustrated searchable online catalog of historical information viewed through the filter of roadside and other permanent outdoor markers, monuments, and plaques. It contains photographs, inscription transcriptions, marker locations, maps, additional information and commentary, and links to more information. Anyone can add new markers to the database and update existing marker pages with new photographs, links, information and commentary. This database stores permanent outdoors historical markers and commemorative plaques. It is not for memorials, dedication and donor plaques, survey disk “monuments” or gravestones. It is not a listing of historical sites. You will find photographs of memorials, dedication and donor plaques, survey disks, gravestones, and historical sites in this database, but they are shown because a historical marker pointed them out, or because the plaque, monument or gravestone was itself inscribed with a bit of history, qualifying it as a historical marker.
This site contains text-to-voice descriptions for those who are visually impaired.
