  Shorewood Birthday Marker

Every Home has a Birthday to Celebrate!

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. 

8"x 8" x 2" engraved granite

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 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 installation.

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 ordered by Sept. 30, 2018, will be installed by mid-November. Later orders will be installed in 2019.

Installed Prices for 2018 - to be announced!

The date will be found in your real estate tax record.

Preferred location: corner of carriage walk and sidewalk. Alternate: centered adjacent to the sidewalk.
