Great American Rail-Trail Markers

Rails to Trails Conservancy has partnered with the Pomeroy Foundation on a marker program designed to highlight historically significant people, places and events along the 3,700-mile Great American Rail-Trail®. Through this exciting program, we seek to engage trail users in the diverse cultural histories of communities along the developing route, while helping communities achieve their goals for trailside tourism and economic development.

In 2023, we collaborated with trail managers and historians to identify and research 12 historic points of interest located on Great American host trails and commemorate them with permanent trailside markers.
