New York Counties.svg

This is a list of New York State Historic Markers by county. There are over 2800 historical markers in New York State. The program was started in 1926 to commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the Revolutionary War and was discontinued in 1966. It was managed under the Department of the Education’s State History Office.

Unlike many other states, New York State does not currently manage a historical marker program. Instead, local authorities are responsible for the approval, installation, and maintenance of historical markers.[1]
