A Little Texas History

Historical Roadside Marker

You've seen them all over the roads of Texas. Those rectangular aluminum markers standing sentry beside highways, country roads, and tourist destinations. A treasury of Texas history is engraved upon them. They recount the history of important buildings, influential people, dramatic events, and local legends.

The state of Texas began placing the markers in the late 1930s. The modern program, currently run by the Texas Historical Commission, began in 1962. Today, you can find more than 13,000 markers throughout the state.
