The Charlotte County Historical Marker Program was established in 2005 to recognize historical resources, persons and events that are significant in the areas of architecture, archaeology, Charlotte County history and traditional culture. Informative markers are placed at these sites of historic and visual interest.
The purpose of this program is to increase public awareness of the rich cultural heritage of our community, to encourage historic preservation, and to enhance the enjoyment of local historic sites for visitors and residents alike. You're invited to visit these sites or take the Heritage Landmark Virtual Tour.
Public suggestions regarding historical markers should be directed to Charlotte County History Services, HistoryServices@charlottecountyfl.gov. For those who would like to sponsor a marker, the cost ranges from $1600 - $2300. Markers must meet the Heritage Landmark Criteria.
Waterway Interpretive Signs
The Waterway Interpretive Signs Program was established in 2019 to recognize historical resources along the waterways that are significant in the areas of architecture, archaeology, Charlotte County history and traditional culture. As a coastal community, the abundance and easy access to waterways has played a substantial role in shaping the history of our area.
