|In 2016, the Historical Society partnered with Ould Colony Artisans to provide
House Marker Signs for residents. Homeowners can now celebrate the rich architectural history of
Nobleboro with an attractive house marker that shows the date their house was built and other
information such as the original builder/owner along with their own name if desired.
The painted markers have a cream background with dark brown lettering and are designed for placement
on the outside of your home. They measure 12 by 16 inches and are made of weatherproof MDO
(medium density overlay) weatherproofed signboard, which has been finished with highest quality
oil-based primer and topcoat enamel. Holes are pre-drilled and screws are provided for installation.
What does the marker say?
Each custom-made marker shows the date your home was built and displays the name of Nobleboro Historical
Society at the bottom.
|Where should I place my historic marker?
The marker should be placed on the outside of your home, at eye level, facing the street. If architectural
features or landscaping make that impractical, markers may be mounted at higher levels, including the
second floor. Care should be taken to minimize confusion with your house number.
Who can participate in the house marker program?
Any home in Nobleboro, single or multifamily built in any year from 1600s to the present, qualifies for
a house marker.
How long does it take to produce each marker?
Your marker will be ready in approximately 2 to 3 weeks after you place your order. It will be mailed
to the address you provide.
