Help Needed to Recover Missing Stoneman’s Raid Highway Historical Markers

Stoneman’s Raid
Raleigh

The Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, which manages the North Carolina Highway Historical Marker Program, requests the public’s help in locating two missing highway historical markers. They both are related to Stoneman’s Raid.

One of the missing markers stood in Salisbury at West Innes Street and Grants Creek and was reported missing in late August. The other missing marker stood in Davidson County at NC 29/70 at Yadkin River bridge and was reported missing Sept. 18. The Davidson County marker had been in place at the bridge for almost 80 years.

The marker program has about 250 markers related to the Civil War so it is not unusual that two would go missing at the same time.

There is a webpage for each marker. The Rowan County marker webpage is located at http://www.ncmarkers.com/Markers.aspx?MarkerId=L-28.  The Davidson County marker webpage is
located at http://www.ncmarkers.com/Markers.aspx?MarkerId=K-15.  

If you have information regarding the disappearance or whereabouts of these markers, please contact Ansley Herring Wegner at (919) 814-6620 or ansley.wegner@ncdcr.gov.

The N.C. Highway Historical Marker Program is within the Office of Archives and History and administered by the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. The Highway Marker Program is collaboration between the N.C. Departments of Natural and Cultural Resources and Transportation.
