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 Google Street Views allowing viewers to look around the spot.  The linked pages present the front and back sides of the markers with transcription of the text.  Included with this collection of monuments and descriptions is an essay written by Dr. Timothy Messer-Kruse: Toledo Historical Monuments and Markers

NOTE: Each marker (linked below) comes with a link to a Google Street View.  Click on those to explore the surrounding area!
