Explore Indiana and Lend IHB a Hand
As you travel the state this summer, please be on the lookout for Indiana State Historical Markers! Our 2013 marker
inventory is underway and we need your help.
This Spring, most of North Central Indiana was surveyed, but we still have markers in Marion County that have eluded our wonderful volunteer photographers. If you're planning to travel in Marion County and would like to hunt for markers, contact Casey for an updated list of photographs needed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Summer, we're focusing on the Southern part of the state. Get involved by sharing your marker photos with us.
And as always, no matter where you are traveling in the state, remember to update us if you notice damaged or missing markers! You can access the marker damage report from our Facebook page or via "Fix a Marker" at IN.gov/history.
Right: Recent Flickr submissions from the ongoing historical marker inventory.
