Signs for National Landmarks, National Register of Historic Places

Every sign we hand letter is treated as a national landmark and national register of historic places property to us. We also recognize many historic homeowners do not want the oversight that comes with being "officially designated" houses on the National Register of Historic Places. That said, we are honored to hand craft historic house plaques and signs for many such properties. Here we feature a selection of these properties that are listed by the United States as National Landmarks or on the National Register of Historic Places.

Alice Paul was the famed sufferagette who championed womens' right to vote in the United States. She was raised at this Burlington County, New Jersey, property near our sign shop in Medford NJ. In 2012, we created a two-sided hanging sign for the birthplace of Alice Paul. Paulsdale can be seen in the background. Constructed of cedar, this is a double-sided sign that has the same text hand lettered on two sides. Visit About Paulsdale.
