In addition to the text describing the historic marker, there are also the names of individuals and organizations that sponsored the particular marker and the year the marker was erected. This information is included at the bottom of the marker. Sponsors may also choose to attach a piece of custom artwork or metal plate to the marker. These can often be found in the corners and might include portraits or emblems. The Sewah codeis is also located at the bottom of each marker.

Example: Marker #4-64

  • 4 indicates that this particular marker is the 23rd marker to be erected in the county
  • 64 indicates that the marker is located in Perry County, which is alphabetically the 64th county
