County Map

"Commemorative Landscapes of North Carolina" is an ongoing project. We began by surveying the commemorative sites in twenty five Piedmont counties, in an arc from Rowan to Cumberland counties. Since then we have continued to survey monuments in eastern and central North Carolina. In the future we will incorporate the commemorative landscapes in the remaining counties into the digital archive. Please return to the site often and watch it as it grows. Let us know if there are commemorative sites that we have missed or that you would like us to add.

The counties currently included for this project are highlighted in blue on the map below. To see a listing of each county's monuments, click the county on the map.
