Historical Marker Program

Evergreen Cemetery Fayetteville
Woodruff County Courthouse

The Arkansas Historical Marker Program, established in 2017 by the Division of Arkansas Heritage, is another way the division is fulfilling its mission to preserve and promote our state’s valuable cultural and historic resources. The markers commemorate the past by acknowledging the historically significant people, places and events that have shaped our state and confirm the importance of educating the public about these Arkansas treasures. Even though national and state events are sure to be recognized in the marker program, local history is just as important and having communities come together in this endeavor is rewarding and beneficial for our state as a whole. The Historical Marker Program creates a visible and lasting tribute to our history, heritage and shared identity as Arkansans.
