Historic Home and Structure Markers


Historic Home and Structure Markers would make for a permanent and memorable Christmas Gift this Holiday Season.

The Rehoboth Historical Commission strives to preserve the wonderful history of Rehoboth, and to help bring awareness of the history of our town to its citizens. Rehoboth is filled with old homes, barns, and other historical structures, some dating back to the 1600s. Many have preserved their originality, while others have been updated to more conform to modern times. No matter the condition of the home, or structure, the history provides the building with personality, and makes for a meaningful property.

To celebrate these historical structures, the Rehoboth Historical Commission has created an application for property owners whose home or historic building date prior to 1901 and would like to have their property recognized. The attractive 9 x 12-inch marker will contain the name given to the property, the approximate date of construction, and the seal of the Rehoboth Historical Commission.

The marker and application process will not place the house or building onto any historical register or affect it in any way. It is simply a way to give recognition and to celebrate the old home, barn, or building. An example of the marker, along with applications, may be found at both the Goff Memorial Hall/Blanding Library on Bay State Road and the Rehoboth Town Hall. The application may also be downloaded from the town website and may be found under the “Boards & Committees” tab and then “Historical Commission”. 

The cost of the marker is one hundred dollars and will cover the cost of the sign, and extra proceeds will be used for historical education and programs. These markers afford a great opportunity to have an historic home or structure properly recognized and to show our community how many beautiful antique homes and buildings survive in our historic town of Rehoboth.
