US Bronze is honored to commemorate America’s treasured landmarks and historic districts. We design plaques that may be placed at sites that have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act in 1966, the National Register is administrated by the National Park Service, an agency of the US Department of Interior. It is the official list of the nation’s historic places worthy of preservation.
The National Register contains over 90,000 listings of districts, sites, buildings, structures, and objects significant in American history, architecture, archeology, engineering, and culture.
In order to be included in the National Register, the property must usually be more than 50 years old and generally look much the way it did in the past. It must be historically significant, meaning that it is associated with important people, events, activities, and developments from the past. Architectural, engineering and landscape significance are also considered, as is the potential of the property to yield important archaeological information.
If you’re a person or with an organization affiliated with a site that’s placed on the National Register, you should know that the government does not issue plaques connected with the listing. Property owners that desire to erect a plaque, are free to do so.
US Bronze designs historic plaques and will be happy to create a plaque in any size that you desire. We will work with you to ensure the plaque is designed to fit your wishes and our skilled craftspeople will help create a finished product that’s aesthetically pleasing. We’ll send you sketch and photos of the proposed project and will be with you every step of the way.
We’ve been in business for nearly a century and have perfected techniques that will help you capture the history you seek to preserve. We’ll do our work onsite and never outsource one of our projects. We’ll also help find a reasonable price for you.
