Order a Plaque


If you own a property listed on the State or National Register of Historic Places, you may purchase a plaque for display. There are different plaques for each of these designations:

  • property listed on the State Register (individually or as part of a district); property individually listed on the National Register; and
  • property that contributes to a National Register historic district. The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) will choose which plaque your property receives based on its historic designation.

Each plaque is made of aluminum with predrilled holes for exterior mounting and measures approximately four by seven inches.

Note: SHPO does not offer directional signage for entering and exiting historic districts.
