FITCHBURG HISTORIC MARKER PROGRAM
The Fitchburg Historical Commission in collaboration with the Fitchburg Historical Society is sponsoring this historic marker program to promote the value of our shared heritage by recognizing structures built at least fifty years ago that maintain their basic character.
This is an opportunity to show pride in your ownership and help our community appreciate your building’s special architectural heritage. Markers also make unique and thoughtful gifts.
Each Historical Marker comes with a free one-year membership to the Fitchburg Historical Society If you are already a member, you may transfer this free membership to another individual!
