Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not sure of the best wording for the inscription on our canal marker. Can you help me?

Yes! Please give it your best shot first. It is common for us to suggest alternative text, even without being asked. The title line should always include the name of the canal being commemorated. For example: “Erie Canal” or “Hood Canal.” Also include the significance of the waterway. For example: “Increased takeoff area for floatplanes and made possible Lake Hood Seaplane Base.” Review our historic signage map for inspiration. We are always happy to help you throughout the application process! Contact us with questions about your proposed inscription.
