Official State Marker Grant Programs

Ohio Historical Markers

William G. Pomeroy Foundation proudly partnered with Ohio History Connection (OHC) in 2014 to provide up to twenty annual historical marker grants in the Buckeye State. The Ohio Historical Markers program, administered by OHC, began in the 1950s and encompasses 1,800 markers that tell the state’s history as written by its communities. These markers tell the unique stories of the people, places, things, and events that helped shape individual communities as well as Ohio and the nation.
