CPS issues Bronze Historic Markers to buildings and homes in Charlestown. These markers are a unique way to recognize a historic building and share its history. The markers include the date built and – if records allow – information such as the name of the builder or original owner. This program is critical to CPS’s mission of preserving our historic character and educating the public on the neighborhoods history and wealth of historic buildings and sites.
Since it’s inception, CPS has approved and installed approximately 200 Historic Markers on buildings and homes around Charlestown. Each red dot below represents a marker in Charlestown. Click on a red dot to enable a pop up that lists marker and historic information on the building.
