Discover Michigan’s Historical Markers

It’s easy, just launch our map in your browser – you don’t need a special app.

  • Click on your current location or on a place you are planning to visit and find a marker.  Michigan’s stories are waiting there for you!
  • You can also check out tours of markers associated with special themes, such as Lighthouses, the Civil War and the Michigan Freedom Trail.  Or pick a time period.  
  • Under the List tab, you’ll find a database of all the markers.  You can organize it by any column (just click on its name) or create your own word or location search.

A database this big is always a work in progress, so please contact MHC if you see something we should change.
