Save America's Treasures - A Resource for Historic Inscription Research

Home | Project Information | Contacts | Inscriptions by Period | Specific Site Database


Sites are currently being imported into the project. Links shown are being activated daily, so check back often.


Unlinked sites will show a general name reference until they can be cross-checked for site numbers. If a site already has an assigned Smithsonian number, the label will be converted to reference that name and number. Appropriate heritage resource forms are being filed for sites not currently referenced by appropriate systems. Considerations are also being made for landowners desiring to retain site anonymity.


Initial postings contain site images, inscription images and a link to a spreadsheet file. The spreadsheet file lists inscriptions documented. As development of the collection progresses, additional information will be posted to specific sites.
