In 1935, the NC General Assembly authorized the NC Highway Historical Marker Program, modeled after a similar program in Virginia. The state’s first marker was dedicated in 1936 in Granville County for the home site of John Penn, one of NC’s three signers of the Declaration of Independence. In its fiftieth year, the program boasts nearly 1,250 markers around the state.
