Identifying areas of historical significance
Modeled after the state of Indiana’s historical marker program and many successful municipal programs, the Indiana University Historical Marker Program noted significant people, places, events, and organizations that have had an extraordinary impact on the university, state, nation, and world. The markers were installed during the Bicentennial Era.
The markers are visually appealing and were installed on campus and at off-campus heritage sites where appropriate.
During the Bicentennial, the Indiana University Historical Marker Program was directed by James Capshew, University Historian.
