Sister City Monuments
Managed By: Icon Here Sister Cities
Description:
A category to waymark monuments and plaques to sister cities/twin cities around the world.
Expanded Description:
Sister cities or twin cities are terms used to describe a formal agreement between two cities or towns from political and geographically distinct area.

In Europe the earliest twinning was between the German city of Paderborn and the French city of Le Mans in 836. The first modern twinning was between the English city of Keighley and Poix-du-Nord in France. Source: Wikipedia.
The first twinning in North America was between the cities of Toledo, Ohio and Toledo, Spain in the 1930s.
Many cities have erected monuments or plaques to honor their sister cities. Many times these can be found in front of the city hall or in a city's main parks.

This category is for permanent monuments and plaques to sister cites. We are looking for monuments, plaques, sister city trees etc... We're not looking for temporary monuments, like a banner on a lamp post. Also we're not look for parks generically named "Sister City Park" (though parks named after specific sister cities are allowed)
Instructions for Posting a Sister City Monuments Waymark:
Please provide at least two photo of the monument. One photo should be a close up, the other photo should be of a general view. Extra photos are always welcome and will help make your waymark even better. Tell about the monument. Where is it located? What kind of monument is it? Is there any history behind the monument? What about the history between the two cities?

NAMING: Please name your waymark: Name - City, State.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Please tell us about your visit to the monument. Also please provide another photo of the monument.
