Planning for Preservation

Historic preservation does not happen by chance, it requires the proper planning, foresight, and education to ensure the protection of Vermont’s historic resources. Effective preservation involves partners and the concerted involvement of many individuals and organizations. With a broad-based effort, thousands of historic resources can endure as landmarks to narrate this brave little state’s distinct sense of place. 

Roadside Historic Site Markers

Unveiled in 1947 by the Vermont Legislature, the Roadside Historic Site Marker program has proven an effective way to commemorate Vermont’s many people, events, and places of regional, statewide, or national significance. Nearly 300 cast-aluminum green markers, crested with the distinctive gold state seal, are placed throughout Vermont to provide a fascinating glimpse into the past and insights into the present.
