Register to Volunteer for National Historic Marker Day!

All day

Register to Volunteer for National Historic Marker Day!

What can National Historic Marker Day participants receive for registering as an official volunteer? Nifty stickers, a cleaning cloth and brush, and even an acknowledgment on our website! Sign up today while supplies last because National Historic Marker Day is less than five weeks away on Friday, April 28.

This fun and family-friendly celebration is the perfect opportunity to beautify your community by cleaning historic markers, while learning about local history.

Without regular care and maintenance, contaminants such as road salt, pollen and dust can cause markers to deteriorate. That’s why joining with volunteers across the country for National Historic Marker Day will help keep them in good condition so they can be enjoyed now and by future generations.

Register on the National Historic Marker Day webpage where you can also access free resources like our volunteer kit, which includes a step-by-step guide to cleaning markers, information about planning your day, lesson plans and child-friendly activities, and tips for publicizing your efforts.

Need help locating a marker in your area? Go to The Historical Marker Database or our comprehensive map to browse for markers. Remember, volunteers should comply with local safety and parking regulations, as well as seek permission when planning a marker cleaning project.

When participating, take plenty of photos and post them on social media using the hashtag #NationalHistoricMarkerDay. We’ll be posting a photo gallery featuring volunteers. Register now and see you on April 28!
