Historic Signs in Upstate New York
Roadside historic markers are our windows to the past. They educate us, they make us curious to investigate, or they provide a nice excuse to take a break and stretch our legs.
These markers tell about historic events and locations and provide the public with knowledge about our history. Although no longer funded by the State, markers are still being installed throughout New York today by individuals, town & county governments, and historical organizations.
This program will explore the history of these historic markers and signs, how they get there, who’s authorized to place them, what are the rules for these signs, and who is responsible for their upkeep.
