Landmarks Historic Marker Program
Take Pride in Your Historic Home!


The Historic Marker Program has a New Look!

The Historic Marker Program is a community outreach effort sponsored by Greater Portland Landmarks to celebrate the rich architectural fabric of greater Portland that we work to preserve and protect.

Property owners can celebrate the historical or architectural significance of their property with a historic marker that includes the property’s name, biographical information about the original or significant owner, and the original date of construction.

The Historic Property Marker Program adds value to your home for use by real estate companies, architectural firms, builders and homeowners alike.
