|"History Markers Of Mississippi"
Website by: Eddie Richardson
|This hobby became interesting to me after I got the idea from my dad when I was a child. When traveling with my parents, my dad would mention he would like to take a picture of every Mississippi historical marker we would come across. After he passed away in 1996, I started thinking about it until I finally acted upon this. I first placed these pictures in a photo album, but I decided to build a web site to share this hobby; moreover, one of these days I hope to become a better photographer.|

| This is a pictorial web site of the historical markers located in the Great State of Mississippi. Mississippi is rich in history dating back to the Indians before Columbus discovered America.
The Historical Markers cover a variety of subjects including People, Indian Mounds, Places, Buildings, Churches, Schools, Events, Military units, Civil War battles, Cemeteries, and even one about a locomotive in Columbus. The vast majority of the Historical Markers on this web site are officially sanctioned by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. A few are placed privately by individuals or a local entity. However, they all have a story to tell. Next time you are riding down a highway or city street in Mississippi and see one of these markers, take time to read it. Just do it safely with respect for all traffic laws and private property.
