Marshall’s Historical Marker Program was started in 1972 when the Michigan Historical Commission approved four new markers. Over the next 30 years, John Collins was responsible for getting additional markers approved until Bob Lowman took over for him in 2002. Currently, Marty Overhiser is heading this program.
Marshall now has 48 state-approved markers- only Detroit and Lansing have more.
