Wayside Signs

Educational & Informative

Wayside Signs are a fantastic way to communicate the significance of a site's history to visitors 24/7. We work with you to write the content and design the sign's appearance.

Funded by Grants

The Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation Inc., seeks to install new wayside signs annually with the assistance of grant funding from the City of Plano Heritage Commission.

Sites all over Plano

We select our wayside sign sites based on their historical, architectural, or cultural merit and significance. Since funding for many of the signs comes from City of Plano grants, they must be installed within Plano city limits. Alternatively funded wayside signs are also an option for locations outside of Plano.
