Corollary: Geocache Me If You Can II

After making my Fort Washington post earlier today, I was talking to a friend who also works in the Scotch & Sirloin building about how cool it'd be if there were a directory of all of the blue historical marker signs in Cambridge. Well, there is. And it features photographs of all of the markers. There's even a marker showing where Meig's Experimental Railway -- a monorail! -- was located. Another handy resource is the site's list of markers that have gone missing -- removed or vandalized. What a wonderful service!

The Cambridge Historical Commission also offers its own directory of historical markers. The commission's list is more wide ranging, including the granite tombstone markers put in in the late 1800s, the cast-iron markers installed in the '30s, the history stations erected in 1976, and the North Cambridge signs, which were slated for installation last year.

Now I have to collect them all! Sheesh.
