Historic Markers, Sites & Trails

Historic Marker Program

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.

In addition to the official historical marker program, the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program is growing the database on the metal markers that have been created and are located around the state. Anyone with knowledge of historical markers in Arkansas is asked to provide as much of the following information as is possible.

  • Subject or title of the markers
  • County in which they are located
  • Nearest city
  • Physical location of the markers (address, intersection, etc.)
  • GPS coordinates
  • Organization that sponsored the markers
  • Date they were dedicated

The information, along with photographs of the markers, can be mailed to the AHPP at 1100 North St., Little Rock, AR 72201, or sent via e-mail message to [email protected].

Arkansas Heritage Sites

Arkansas’s heritage sites need to be officially recognized for their heritage and cultural resources so that current and future generations can learn about their stories and enjoy them. This includes geographic areas of historic importance.

The Heritage Sites program was started in spring of 2020. If you have any questions please reach out to the AHPP staff at info[email protected] or by calling the main switch board at (501) 324-9880 and asking to speak with a member of the National Register team.
