Cedar Rapids Historic Markers

The Cedar Rapids Historic Markers project is a collaborative community history project that seeks to highlight notable historic sites throughout the city. The sites included in this project range from architecturally significant buildings to narratives related to the founding of Cedar Rapids to lesser known story about our community’s past. Key collaborators of this project include the Cedar Rapids Historic Preservation Commission, The History Center, Coe College, the African American Museum of Iowa, local faith communities, neighborhood associations, as well as a number of individual community residents.
