HISTORICAL MARKER PROGRAM

The Alabama Historical Commission's historical marker program began in 1975 to help preservationists inform the public about significant buildings, sites, structures, objects, cemeteries, and districts in the state. Sewah Studios manufactures all AHC markers using the State of Alabama Seal.

The Alabama Historical Association has a similar marker program. The Alabama Historical Association also uses Sewah Studios, but their markers feature the Alabama State Flag.

To qualify for an historical marker or plaque the property must be listed in the Alabama Register, National Register, or Cemetery Register. If you are interested in purchasing an historical marker or plaque, please review the AHC Historical Marker and Plaque Packet.

This web map represents a plot of properties and historic districts in listed in our various preservation programs. Locational data on this map is considered highly accurate at all map scales, unless a specific disclaimer is made in the attribute data (typically after the property name). This map is currently a work in progress; however, the map automatically updates as new details and attachments are added. For those that prefer, this data is also available as a GIS REST Service for use with ArcGIS for Desktop. Details are listed on the map’s contents page, or contact eric.sipes@ahc.alabama.gov for more information.
