Traveling US History: Historic Highway
A historical marker or historic marker is an indicator such as a
plaque or sign to commemorate an event or person of historic
interest and to associate that point of interest with a specific
locale one can visit.
A great source of pride in America’s fascinating national, state
and local history, the America’s historical highway markers have
attracted the interest and attention of young and old.
For many years, historical highway markers have been erected to
commemorate prehistoric, historic, scenic, and geological sites. From coast to coasts, historical highway markers grace the
roadsides in each of America’s 50 states.
