Virginia's Historical Highway Markers Audio Tours
The Virginia Historical Highway Markers Program began in 1927, and was the first to be established in the country. It rapidly became a very popular way to learn more about the state's diverse history. Of course, in 1927, automobiles traveled much more slowly, and never on an interstate highway system as vast as the one we rely on today.
Unfortunately, the slower pace of life, which facilitated the early marker program, has itself become a thing of the past, and many tourists and residents only experience Virginia from our busy modern highways. With the exception of the handful of historical highway markers that are co-located at Virginia Welcome Centers, travelers along our roads and interstates rarely have a chance to stop and read about the history that happened around them.
We hope you will find that the Virginia Department of Historic Resources' historical highway markers audio tours available on izi.TRAVEL solve this problem.
