Description:
The Buckeye state has a rich history. Ohio is dotted over 1,300 of these large metal historical marker signs, each giving a glimpse into our past with a short history lesson.
Expanded Description:

Only Ohio Historical Markers qualify. These are large signs with raised lettering made from copper & aluminum.

Coordinates should be for the marker itself. If the marker is located some distance from the actual site being described, provide coordinates for that location, if possible.

See: Remarkable Ohio for more information on these markers located across the state. There are individual pages on each mark there (which would make for a good link, if no other webpage is found).

Instructions for Posting a Ohio Historical Markers Waymark:

Include a description of the location marked by the site and a summary of the text. Since not everyone has a digital camera, I will not require photo(s) but they are appreciated - especially if there is a building, ect. that is described by the sign.

Also post the Sewah code, a number that is in the bottom right corner of each sign. Example: Marker #3-71 : 3 indicates that it was the 3rd marker placed in a particular county. 71 indicates the county (Ross, in this case.).

If you find an error (or other issue) on the OHM website, you might consider sending an email to: info@RemarkableOhio.org informing them of the issue. I'm sure they would like to improve the accuracy of their site.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
If possible, unique photographs taken at the site, are requested. These can be of the site, your companions on your visit, or whatever. Tell of what you learned or thought of the site.
