Description:
Waymark and photograph Official Michigan Historic Markers.
Expanded Description:
If it's an Official State of Michigan Historic Site, it belongs here! To qualify, it should be listed at either the Michigan Historical Markers website or at the Michigan Historic Sites Online website in the State Markers listings. Typical State Historic Markers are cast aluminum with raised gold letters on a dark green background.
Example:
****UPDATED JANUARY, 2008****
We are now accepting submissions of any official Historic Marker in the state of Michigan.

To qualify as a Historic Marker, it must:

* Commemorate an historic item, person, event, or place. "Building plaques" or "construction plaques" will not be approved.
* Be a permanent marker

Plaques that are already covered in other categories, such as National Historic Registry plaques and war memorial plaques should be listed in those categories.

Plaques should have a sponsoring entity, such as a person or organization. This information must be included in the description. However, if the plaque's sponsoring entity is not available, such as in this marker, it may still be considered. Be aware that we will be very stingy with approvals that do not have a sponsoring entity.

Submissions still must contain at least one original photo of the marker, as well as a photo of the "thing being marked", if it's available.

Instructions for Posting a Michigan Historical Markers Waymark:
Either take a photograph of the historical marker or copy the marker text and post it along with the coordinates and a description of the significance of the area. You must include the site number from the marker. Typical markers will have either a Registered Site number, Historical Building number or Local Site number.

Please DO NOT include your GPS in the photo.

NEW!
IF THE MARKER IS MISSING, YOU CAN STILL LOG THE SITE PROVIDING:

* The actual thing (building, for example) that was being honored in the marker is still standing. If the Marker is missing and the building is no longer standing, you may not list it.
* You submit at least one original photo of the Historic Item showing the same items as the photo(s) on the official Michigan State Historical Registry, proving the location /item is the correct location / item. This must be the Waymark's "default" image.
* You provide in the "Private message" section a link to the exact webpage in the Michigan Historic Sites Online and, optionally Michigan Historical Markers website, so that the officers can verify your listing.
* You indicate in your submission that the marker is missing.
Please also make an attempt to find the missing marker by locating a site manager and requesting the status.
Please note: You will still need to provide the registered site number. This is available at the Michigan Historical Markers website listing for the marker. The reference number listed at the Michigan Historic Sites online database is not the correct number.

Should the status of the marker change, such as the marker being erected, we request you update your listing. Should the building being honored be destroyed, we request you archive your listing. Thank you.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Take a photo of your GPS at the marker. We'd prefer a photo of you with your GPS, but we realize that sometimes that's just not possible or preferable. Also include a bit about your visit to the marker.

NEW: Instructions for logging Missing Marker Visits.

If the Marker is missing, but still listed here, you must provide a photo of you at the actual item historically honored. (This should be the waymark's "default" image). Indicate in your log that you took your photo at the Historical Location instead of the marker, because the marker was missing. Please also still include a bit about your visit to the site.
