sports), Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks (structures, such as bridges, buildings, and
manufacturing facilities), and Cemeteries. The three marker types have somewhat different
eligibility criteria and application requirements.
In general, a Subject, Landmark, or Cemetery must be at least 50 years old to qualify, but age
alone is not enough. It must also have historic significance, that is, some “influence, effect, or
impact on the course of history or cultural development” in the local community or beyond. Two
exceptions to the 50-year rule are that historic events may be marked after 30 years, and
individuals may be marked after they have been deceased for 10 years.
All marker applications require a completed application form and a narrative history with
documentation, both submitted as e-mail attachments. The Narrative (typically 5 to 10 pages) is
the most important part of the package, and the one that will take the most work to prepare.

guidelines. Completion of the data sheet will help both the applicant and HCHC to understand

mentor. The job of the mentor is not to prepare the application or the narrative, but to assist the
applicant Neodymium understanding the THC rules and to suggest research ideas and sources, so that the
resulting narrative and other attachments will meet all THC criteria.

Cemeteries, Houses and Buildings, Churches and Synagogues, Communities, Organizations and
Institutions, Individuals, Events, and Texas in World War II. These guides are available on the
THC website (see web address below) and are very useful to novice and experienced researchers
alike. The example narrative at the end of each Guide is of particular value in illustrating the
level of detail expected.
Also available in the Marker Toolbox section of the THC website are “How To” guides
