Source for Markers, Historic Plaques and Site Wayfinding Systems in Virginia
Since Virginia hosts over 30% of the US News & World Report’s Top 13 Historic Destinations in the US, it only makes sense that our Richmond-area-based sign company, Holiday Signs of Chester, Virginia, manufactures historic plaques, markers, kiosks, and so on.
Many times I have walked into our shop to find a Virginia Historical Marker being refurbished. (All states have them, the heavy metal signs with silver backgrounds and black letters that make travelers aware of local historic sites.)
We also get involved with historic sign systems at many of Virginia’s Battlefield Parks, recently completing signage for the Pamplin Civil War Park in Richmond, and the Museum of the Confederacy in Appomattox.
Projects are as simple as individual bronze plaques or as complex as complete wayfinding systems. Sometimes we help with interpretive signage that helps tell an interesting story at each stop along the way of a historic trail. We also build and install complete traffic directional sign systems such as a system we made for Colonial Williamsburg.
Many area college, church, and hospital campuses have utilized Holiday Signs for historic-type sign structures in special gardens, cemeteries, and other historic areas housed at their facilities.
Now that schools are out in Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, and DC, we hope you will take some time to enjoy the wealth of history all around you and think of Holiday Signs as you enjoy the many markers that help tell the historical story of Virginia’s colorful past!
