One Wisconsinite's journey to digitally record the history of Wonderful Wisconsin. As of April 1, 2017, Wisconsin Historical Markers has posted links to 5,801 Wisconsin historical markers and sites, museums, lighthouses, and veterans memorials, vintage hamburger joints and Smokey the Bear signs, along with more than 60,000 photographs, and is proud to have the most comprehensive survey of its kind anywhere online. And we're just getting started . . .
The Wisconsin Heritage Sign Program was
started in 1994. It is no longer active, but the signs can still be
found on roadways throughout Wisconsin. There are nearly 200 signs in
the series, beginning with Sign #110 and ending with Sign #305. To my knowledge, the exact locations of the markers were never recorded, so finding a Heritage Sign Program marker is simply serendipity. It is my goal to identify and record the locations of all of these signs. To date, Wisconsin Historical Markers is the only online resource for the Heritage Sign Program markers.
