Does your county or town have an historical marker that needs refurbishing? You could be eligible for a grant or financial assistance to help refurbish a marker. Thanks to a grant from the Alabama Tourism Department, and in partnership with the Alabama Bicentennial Commission, the Alabama Historical Association has launched a one-year pilot refurbishment program, which will assume 100 percent of the costs for refurbishing approximately 45 AHA-sponsored markers.
