GHS Markers Mobile App

A new mobile app, developed by Heideldesign, allows users to search the Georgia Historical Marker database to identify markers near a chosen Georgia location. Using either their current location, or picking another location around the state, users can see the markers closest to the chosen location and get directions to those markers. Markers are also searchable by title and by time period.

The Georgia Historical Society has administered Georgia’s statewide marker program since 1998, erecting nearly 300 historical markers across Georgia on a wide variety of subjects. Today those markers and over two thousand others are available here through our searchable database.

Roadside historical markers capture Georgia history in a format readily understood by travelers and residents alike. These easily identifiable markers give readers a unique insight into the stories of our shared past.

Features Include:

  • Instant loading of the markers closest to your exact location
  • Find markers nearest to the location of your choosing
  • Narrow your search by historical marker title or category
  • Comprehensive details, photos, and marker content
  • Ability to view markers on a map
  • The Android version of the app gives turn-by-turn directions via Google Maps
