The State Historic Marker Program was managed by the State History office of the New York Education Department from 1926 to 1996. It was begun as part of the celebrations around the Sesquicentennial of the American Revolution.
Over 2,800 markers were erected from 1926 to 1939, when funding for the program was lost. A set of larger markers were placed at rest areas during the mid 1960s, giving descriptions of regional history.
