Ohio historical markers throughout Toledo speak to the remarkable events and institutions that shaped the community since its foundation. While the buildings (and the people and organizations who built them) may no longer be there, markers stand as reminders to current and future generations. This exhibit features Toledo historical markers through photos and interactive panoramic views allowing views to look around the spot. Included with this collection of monuments and descriptions is an essay written by Dr. Timothy Messer-Kruse: Toledo Historical Monuments and Markers


Recent changes to the site: the original Quicktime interractive panoramas created in 1997 are no longer accessible in current browsers; instead, efforts are underway to present the same view via Google Street View.  We appreciate your patience throughout this process.
