The Arkansas Historical Marker Program, established in 2017 by the
Division of Arkansas Heritage, is another way the department is
its mission to preserve and promote our state’s valuable
cultural and historic resources. The markers commemorate the past by
the historically significant people, places and events that
have shaped our state and confirm the importance of educating the public
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
a visible and lasting tribute to our history, heritage, and
shared identity as Arkansans.
