Description:
Roadside historic markers are our windows to the past. They educate us, they make us curious to investigate, or they provide a nice excuse to take a break and stretch our legs while we read what happened here. California's historic marker program is a great way to learn the history of the The Golden State! See waymark creation and logging requirements below.
