The markers, although privately financed, remain the property
of the State of Michigan. In many instances the pictures are of private residences or
sites. I thank the owners of them for their cooperation and for the use of the images.
For more information, see Laura Rose Ashlee's excellent book Traveling
Through Time which is now available in a revised edition; published by The University
of Michigan Press.
A few of the markers have become missing
over the years. If that happened before I was able to photograph it, I have included a
picture of site, if available, and used the text from Ms. Ashlee's book. I greatly thank
her for that.

The markers on this site are organized by both topical

To explore the markers by area of interest, enter a word or phrase in the search
box and click the search button. For example enter 'depot' to find the more
than 20 markers containing that word in the text.
The accompanying maps show the general location of the
