Welcome to the Lat34North, Historic Markers Across Georgia. There are several web sites (see links at the left) that have information on the Historic Markers throughout GA. I have used several sources to collect this information, including personally visiting many of the Historic Markers, as well as the GeorgiaInfo© site*, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs site, the Atlanta Regional Commissions Google Earth download and the Waymarking site (Georgia Historic Markers category).
Historical Marker Repair and Replacement
Georgia has over 2,000 state historical markers. At any time, a number of markers are missing due to theft or are damaged, principally due to vehicle strikes but also due to construction, falling trees, bird droppings, etc. A 2010 assessment of the marker inventory revealed that many markers needed to be replaced, repaired, painted or needed new mounting posts. The cost to repair or repaint a historical marker fluctuate over time, please contact the Georgia Historical Society for current prices.
The Georgia Historical Society is now responsible for the maintenance of historic markers erected by the Georgia Historical Commission and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GHM) as well as those erected by the Georgia Historical Society (GHS). Other organizations that erect historical markers are responsible for their own maintenance.
