North Carolina Highway Historical Marker Program

Requests ...

A nyone is free to submit a proposal for a highway historical marker. Documentary evidence 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. Files on all proposals are maintained by the Research Branch and are available for public examination upon request. Photographs and negatives are kept on file for most markers.

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 write Research Branch, 4610 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27610-4610.
