Historic marker applications due Oct. 31

The Forsyth County Historic Resources Commission is accepting applications through Oct. 31 for historic markers to be installed in 2022. The site, event or organization being recognized must be over 50 years old. Recognition of an individual must be posthumous, and the person’s contribution to local history must be at least 50 years old. The subject of the marker may not currently be recognized in Forsyth County by any other marker program, either public or private. The commission may award two markers for sites within the city of Winston-Salem, one marker for a site in the unincorporated areas of Forsyth County, and up to two self-funded markers. Self-funded markers cost approximately $2,500 and may be located anywhere in Forsyth County; they must meet the same qualifications as government-funded markers. Applications may be submitted as PDFs by email to preservation@cityofws.org
Applications and information about the program are available at https://www.cityofws.org/1366/Historic-Marker-Program. Questions? Email preservation@cityofws.org.
