New Hampshire Historical Highway Markers

New Hampshire’s historical highway markers illustrate the depth and complexity of the state's history and the people who made it, from Abenaki Native Americans to poets, painters and contemporary sports figures; from meeting houses to stone arch bridges and long-lost villages; and from factories and cemeteries to places where international history was made.

The New Hampshire Historical Highway Marker Program is temporarily on hold and not accepting new proposals for marker topics currently. Due to the ongoing challenges presented by global supply chain shortages as well as employee shortages at our vendor’s foundry, we are cooperating with their request to hold off on new orders to allow them time to catch up on a significant backlog affecting the 40 states for which they manufacture markers. We appreciate their honesty and commitment to quality. The State currently has four markers on order, and we will announce their arrival and unveiling as we typically do through press releases, our social media channels, and by updating this webpage. In the meantime, please continue exploring and enjoying New Hampshire’s beauty and history through the marker program either virtually through our interactive map or by completing a Marker Quest. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The New Hampshire Historical Highway Marker Program is jointly managed by the N.H. Division of Historical Resources and N.H. Department of Transportation (NHDOT). Once the marker text is approved NHDOT coordinates the manufacture and installation of the markers. Final location and installation decisions are made by NHDOT.

How can I report a marker that is in poor condition or needs revision?

As the marker program continues to grow in size and popularity, the DHR appreciates it when the public takes an interest in the program. If you notice that a marker is missing, in poor condition, please complete and submit a Report a Damaged or Missing Marker Form. Or if you would like express concern about the content of the marker, please complete and submit a Request for Revision or Retirement Form.

Who can I contact if I have questions about the marker program?

Please contact Amy Dixon, Community Preservation Coordinator, at amy.s.dixon@dncr.nh.gov or 603-271-3485.
