The Georgia Historical Society has administered Georgia’s statewide marker program since 1998, erecting over 160 historical markers across Georgia on a wide variety of subjects. Today those markers and over two thousand others are available here through our searchable database.
Roadside historical markers capture Georgia history in a format readily understood by travelers and residents alike. These easily identifiable markers give readers a unique insight into the stories of our shared past.

Ratings and Reviews
App good. Data missing.
The App itself is not bad, although it would be useful if you could also set the search location rather than only being able to search from 'current location'.
There are also way too many markers missing which is a real shame.
You can search entire state
To FluffyRAM--you can search entire state. Click on "search by other than current location" button. And yes, there are markers missing but remember this app was developed for the Civil War150 Historical Marker Project. All Civil War markers are included and as many others as could be added during the survey conducted by GHS. Even so, this is still the best marker app available. It has more functions and is more attractive than any other. Congrats to GHS and the GA Dept. of Economic Development for creating this pioneering app! It was and still is the best!!
Search by other than current location
I am planning a trip to Atlanta but live in Florida. How do I see markers there before I get there. It would be nice to plan that way.
