Rhode Island Historical Markers
Managed By: Icon Here Rhode Island Reds
The purpose of this category is to seek out and document historical markers and plaques with text describing an historical event or place within the U.S. state of Rhode Island.
Expanded Description:
Although the smallest U.S. state by area, Rhode Island was the second of the original 13 colonies to declare independence from British rule, and is bursting at the seams with history. While the State of Rhode Island does not currently have an official historical marker program, many historical organizations within the state have historical marker programs that designate local sites as historic. The purpose of this category is to identify those markers and the history they commemorate.
Instructions for Posting a Rhode Island Historical Markers Waymark:

1. NAME: The name of the historical marker or plaque and its location should be included in the title. Generally this should be the city/town and state -- whatever is appropriate to its location.

3. PHOTO: Two photos of the marker that you have taken yourself are required. One should be a close-up photo of the entire marker. The second should be a photo of the historic place commemorated or the general area around the marker. A GPSr photo is not required.
