New Court Square Markers - The Rest of the Story
The Historic Resources Committee is in the process of redesigning historic markers for Court Square.
Look for a new series of brown street signs in historic neighborhoods throughout the city as well as new, color-coded pedestrian signs at major intersections!

Note: The previous link to the City’s Audio Tour site was compromised; we regret any inconvenience. The Wordpress link above will take you to the correct web page (audiotourcville.wordpress.com). The phone number was not compromised and is still correct. All the blue signs at the Audio Tour sites are being replaced with new orange signs that contain this Historic Resources Committee web address, and a smart code that will take you directly to our Wordpress web site. We hope you will continue to enjoy this Audio Tour!
