New Downtown Historic Markers
In another project of our Five Rivers Historic Preservation group, last Saturday David Bowlin and I, with a little help from my brother Bill, installed 8 metal plaques on some of the old buildings in the Pocahontas Commercial Historic District. The historic markers give the name by which each building is known locally, its construction date, and a little historic information. We will put up more markers as money becomes available (they are quite expensive).
Each historic marker has space on it for a QR code. Smartphone users can scan the QR codes with their phone to open a web page giving more information on each building, historic photos, etc.
