Description:
Wisconsin historical markers identify, commemorate and honor the important people, places, and events that have contributed to the state's rich heritage. The Wisconsin Historical Markers Program is a vital education tool, informing people about the most significant aspects of Wisconsin's past.

Please be sure to read the submission guidelines before entering a new marker!
Expanded Description:

Wisconsin Historical Marker Logo

There are more than 470 official state markers in Wisconsin that commemorate sites, individuals, buildings, or events of local, state, or national significance. These can be found along highway waysides, parks, and other surprising sites. A list of markers can be found on the Wisconsin Historical Society website. A PDF file with all the markers is here.

Instructions for Posting a Wisconsin Historical Markers Waymark:

When creating a new waymark, please include:

  • Coordinates
  • A close-up picture of the marker so the text is legible. Make this picture the main image for the waymark. There's a few signs that have different text on both sides of the sign. If that's the case, please take a picture of both sides of the sign.
  • A picture of the general location. For some locations, like highway pull-offs, this may not be particularly interesting (although for some people it might be!) but for markers in historical or urban locations, it might be interesting to see the sign in the context of its surroundings.
  • By the way, you don't need to include your GPSr or yourself in the picture when entering in a new marker. Of course, you're free to submit as many extra pictures as you'd like besides the two required ones.
  • The county in which the marker is located.
  • A description of the site. For example: What happened there? The text from the marker is fine, or use your own words to describe the location. A search on the internet might reveal a local preservation society that commissioned the placement of the marker. A link to their website would be nice.
  • The marker number from the PDF file above.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
  • A picture of the marker with your GPSr or you holding your GPSr.
