Description:
A "blue plaque" is a sign attached to a house where (maybe) someone famous once lived, or placed where a notable event took place, or attached to a building that is remarkable in another way.

Note: Please see additional updates below for some minor adjustment to the Requirements for this Category made on 12/27/2008.
Expanded Description:
Waypoints for this category are for "blue plaques" associated with local or regional organizations that manage a "blue plaque" program (so don't even think of spray-painting a "blue sign" and hanging it on your front door!)

In the United Kingdom there are several organizations that manage "Blue Plaque" programs.

And the same is true in the United States. For example, in California, the County of Santa Cruz has a Blue Plaque program:
