Notes from the past…

There’s an APP for that: Texas Historical Commission roadside markers

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has an interesting article today about the Texas Historical Commission’s practice of placing plaques around the state to commemorate important events in Texas’ history:

This year, the markers themselves will be eligible for a plaque: The Texas Historical Commission is commemorating 50 years of placing those familiar metal markers — 15,740 and counting — where momentous and sometimes minuscule slices of the state’s past played out.

TexasMarkersAnd guess what? There is actually an iPhone app available to help you find those markers. “Ever wonder what that historical marker said after you passed it while cruising down the road? Wonder no longer!!”

99 cents gets the history of Texas in the palm of your hand… (Please don’t text and drive, unless you want a historical marker of your very own!)
