Historical Marker Database

One of the most overlooked parts of any roadside is the historical marker. People drive past them every day without ever taking the time to stop and read them and you may not even realize how many you pass in a single day. This website, the Historical Marker Database, helps you to identify their location and their significance. You can locate markers by category, by state/province, and even by country. If you want to find markers in your area, then go to this site. If you want to know the history behind the markers then this is the site for you. A project idea could be to have students locate, photograph, and write about the historical markers in their town using the Historical Marker Database
