    Public Art Collection-Historical Marker Database

    Nathan Hale Undergraduate

    New Haven's rich history consists of almost 375 years of western and American civilization, and more than a millenia before that of Native American people and culture.  One of the ways in which people mark special places, events and people is to install a marker of some sort -- very often a bronze plaque set into stone, though the materials, size and shape of markers is as diverse as the types of information you can find by reading these neglected objects.  Overviews of town development, biographies, short narratives of war battles and historical events are identified in communities across the United States -- offering a key to learning more about who we are, and how we got here. 

    The Historical Marker Database provides a large amount of information about New Haven through the documentation of historical markers around the city.
