Celebrate your home's Birthday with a Granite Birthday Marker

historic birthday marker

To call attention to the history of our homes and neighborhoods, the Shorewood Historical Society has designed a granite "Birthday Marker" that will call attention to the year a Shorewood home was built. 

The markers are 8 inches square and 2 inches thick. The granite is engraved with the Shorewood Historical Society logo and the date. The date will be finished with black lithochrome to highlight the date. The Marker will be placed in the parkway in front of the designated home, either adjacent to the carriage walk/sidewalk or centered on the parkway next to the sidewalk. They will be professionally installed and embedded flush with the walk and yard.

The markers are available to all Shorewood residents for purchase from the Shorewood Historical Society. The Historical Society will arrange for the manufacture and installation of the Markers.  The Shorewood Assessor's records will be used to determine the year each home was built unless the homeowner has documentation to prove the Assessor's record is not accurate (e.g. the Assessor's date may reflect a land purchase date rather than the year construction was completed).

Markers must be ordered by September 30, 2018. The granite stones will be made in early October and installed thereafter until the project is completed.

Price of the marker including installation:

  • Shorewood Historical Society members:     $89
  • Non-members:                                             $99*

*Non-members will receive a balance of the year membership in the Historical Society with their order.
