Markers & Monuments
The current Markers and Monuments database has not been updated in many years. We are currently working on a new platform with updated information. We hope for it be available and live by the end of 2018.
What's the difference between a marker and a monument?
In this database, a marker contains the text. It may be a bronze, aluminum, or wooden plaque.
The monument holds the marker. In most cases, the monument is a freestanding structure made of wood, stone, or brick, but sometimes the marker is attached to a structure, such as a building or bridge. Those structures then become the monument.
Sometimes the marker is inscribed directly on the monument; then the marker and the monument are the same.
