nyone is free to submit a proposal for a highway historical marker.
Primary and secondary research should be included to
support the validity of the claim or authenticity of
the site. Proposals must be received six weeks in
advance of a committee meeting. Once received, the
staff of the Research Branch will attempt to verify
and supplement the proposal. The best possible case
will be made in the presentation to the committee.
The administrator of the program makes the applications
available to the committee electronically, so a digital
application is preferred (but not required). Files
on all proposals are maintained by the Research
Branch and are available for public examination
To request an application (either a digital or paper copy) call the
Research Branch, M-F, 7:30-4:30, at (919) 807-7290 or

or email address where you can be reached and include
information about the subject that you wish to commemorate.
