The Temple Historic Preservation Committee requires that certain criteria be met in order to receive approval for a Temple Historic Marker. All of the criteria are outlined in the Historic Marker Application which can be downloaded here or picked up at the Temple Visitor Center. Contact us for more information.
Keep in mind when filling out the application that the purpose of this program is not to be burdensome to the applicant, but to identify and preserve as much information as possible about the history of our city for future generations. It is also important to note that the Temple Historic Marker Program is separate from the federal inventory of historic properties (National Register of Historic Places) and separate from the state marker program (Official Texas Historic Markers).
Information about the federal marker program, as well as the state marker program may be obtained by contacting the National Register Programs Office of the Texas Historical Commission.
