A Mark in History...
Pennsylvania Historical
Marker Program

T

he Pennsylvania Historical and
Museum Commission administers
a program of historical markers
to capture the memory of people, places,
events, and innovations that have affected
the lives of Pennsylvanians over the
centuries since William Penn founded
his Commonwealth. More than 2,000
cast aluminum markers tell the important
and interesting stories that are part of the
history of Pennsylvania.
Nominations for historical markers
may be submitted by any person or
organization. New markers are approved
and dedicated each year. Each dedication
presents opportunities for Pennsylvanians
to celebrate and understand their heritage.
The Pennsylvania Historical and
Museum Commission (PHMC) in
2019, approved 18 markers from 55
applications. Pulitzer Prize-winner John
Updike, the Marianna Mine Explosion
and the FBI Office Burglary in Media
were some of the historic persons and
places that will be commemorated
through the historical marker program.
'Time in a Bottle' ... The PHMC
most recently announced the approval
of a historical marker for James Joseph
'Jim' Croce, the Delco native and singersongwriter who became a hit in the folk
and rock genres in the late '60s and early
'70s. Croce is a 1960 graduate of Upper
Darby High School who continued his
education at Villanova University. Croce
was the first person to be inaugurated into
the Upper Darby High School Wall of
Fame in 1976.
