Historical Marker Program
The Georgia Historical Society’s statewide historical marker program offers the public an opportunity to learn our state’s history in the places where it happened.
Roadside historical markers can be found throughout Georgia, sharing the stories of our past in an easily identifiable and understandable format.
The Georgia Historical Society has administered Georgia’s historical marker program since 1998, erecting nearly 300 new historical markers across the state on a wide variety of subjects. GHS also recently assumed responsibility for coordinating the maintenance of damaged and missing markers erected prior to 1998.
These executive summaries of historical events can also be found through a searchable database and mobile app, which allows you to access information on markers in all parts of Georgia. Travel routes can be based on individual interests as well as topics such as the Civil War, the Civil Rights movement, and more.
