FAQs for National Register of Historic Places Plaques and Markers

What info should I have on my National Register of Historic Places Plaque or Marker?

Most of our customers modify their National Register of Historic Places plaque to say, “This Property Has Been Listed In The National Register of Historic Places”.

The National Park Service web site says “As far as phrasing is concerned, the National Register has no formal requirements or suggestions.” Therefore, we are pleased to customize your plaque with the text you desire. We do recommend that if you are purchasing a plaque describing listing on a local register of Historic Places, that you verify the plaque wording that they may require.

Here is more information from the National Park Service:

“….The National Register of Historic Places does not issue plaques as a result of listing; rather we leave it up to the individual owners if they are interested in having one. The plaques below are considered “customized” National Register Plaques. You can add house names, addresses, construction dates, logo’s, and photographs to the “standard” national register plaque wording. Please contact us if you have any questions.”
