The attempt to list all markers has been made several times and each time has failed, since it is volunteer and never 100% statewide. We tried again in 1994-6 and with good press and good networking only got 20%.

There are about 3000 statefunded markers in the last inventory and estimates suggest about 1200 others of the same design.

Some localities, and a couple counties have done an inventory and guide for theirs. There is probably no hope of ever getting the whole state done.

I don't have information on the Henry Seeber historical marker. but I
want to make a comment.
Philip Lord has made the state funded listing of Historical Markers
on the internet.
But there is not a listing of the non-state funded markers on the net
that I know of. or even a listing...

If there is a listing, could someone please let me know, and if there is
not.   I'd offer anyone to email me with a non-state funder marker that
they know of, with all the information, so that I could make a listing
of these on my webpage..
So far, I have three in the area of Northern Rensselaer County, so it is
just in its infancy.

Thank you,
mike Engle
