How to Apply for a Kentucky Historical Marker

Highway signs for historic sites


The Kentucky Historical Society is accepting applications for historical markers.  To have a historic site considered for a highway sign that describes its significance, complete the application before October 1, 2008. Fifteen applications will be selected.

The fee for a highway marker is $2,075 for a one-sided marker and $2,300 for a two-sided marker. This fee has increased from last year due to the rising cost of maintenance, which includes the cost for replacements, missing or severely damaged markers, new posts, or refurbishing.

Read the full news release for more details. Kentucky has over 2000 historical markers along its streets and highways.  You can browse or search through them at the Kentucky Historical Marker Database.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
