Historical Markers

For generations residents and tourists to New York have seen the traditional blue and gold historical markers located along the roads and byways of the Empire State.  But until now there was no one location to find listing of all those markers.  They also could not find resources on how to create, preserve and protect those markers.  APHNYS has been involved with creating such a database and resource area since 2010.

Here is the entire inventory of the original markers created by the state from the 1920s to the end of then program in the late 1930s.  This list had been maintained by the New York State Musuem and was recently transferred to APHNYS. APHNYS will be improving this list and asking for help from local historians to make any updates and/or corrections to the listing. Stay tuned for further information. The list is alphabetical by county then by municipality. To find a particular marker or location, use [ctrl] F to search the PDF file.
