There are two ways to display the Roadside Historical Markers for each county without performing a database
search (think of these as the “browsing” approach):
The Roadside Historical Markers database can be searched using three categories:
Note: Each main search category (Keyword, Town, Thematic Topic) has its own "Submit" and "Reset"
buttons; make sure you click the correct button.
The markers highlighted on the various "tours" represent just a sampling of
the Roadside Historical Markers that may relate to a particular tour topic, and are intended to
provide a general introduction to that topic. For more in-depth investigation of a topic,
use the search tools. For example, for the topic "Civil War" you could perform a keyword search on
phrases such as "Civil War," "battlefield," "Confederate," etc.
Clicking on the photographs accompanying any of the marker descriptions will display an enlarged
version of the photograph.
