Placing of Historical Markers in NC

The North Carolina Highway Historical Marker Advisory Committee meets twice each year, to review applications and make decisions on placement of new historical markers.

One marker placed this year in the area commemorates Thelonious Monk. Located by the Booker T. Theater in downtown Rocky Mount, North Carolina, the marker is about 1 mile South of Mr. Monk’s birthplace. Known as marker “E-119”, it may be viewed downtown — and online on the historical marker website,

The website also provides an interactive map, allowing searchers to locate markers in their immediate area.

No dedications are yet listed on the site with future dates, but as they are scheduled, the public is welcomed to attend marker unveilings. Applications may also be submitted for review.
