Several historical markers have been placed throughout Carmel's Old Town area, concentrated in the Arts & Design District, to inform residents and visitors about our city's history and interesting architectural features. We hope you enjoy them and learn a little more about our beginnings.
This is a Carmel Arts Council project.
