Wisconsin Historical Society "Offical" Markers 1-50


This post includes a digital list of the Wisconsin Historical Society's "official" markers -- organized by number / date erected. Marker 1: Peshtigo Fire Cemetery was erected in 1951. The list now contains more than 550 markers. In my opinion, it's nearly impossible to use this numerical list. When I began my journey in 2012 to visit and photograph the then 532 markers on the list, there was no user-friendly list of the markers. So, the first thing I did was put the list into a logical order by organizing the markers first by county and then numerically; this took nearly 60 hours and was the impetus for the "Wisconsin Historical Markers" website.


Anyway, here's Wisconsin Historical Society's "official" markers 1-50, listed in numerical order:
