How To Create Your Sign Plan
The family of roadway signs designed for the Oregon National Historic Trail creates a unique opportunity for visitors. The signs help them find roads, trail segments, and sites where history happened. A sign's brown background alerts travelers that there's an opportunity to explore the historic trail ahead. The logo identifies places as being on the Oregon National Historic Trail. We hope you agree and that you will partner with the National Park Service (NPS) to help travelers find the national historic trail and explore our shared heritage! These web pages are designed to assist you in creating your own sign plan. Please read the information under each subhead link below and call us with any questions.
