The Historic Ardmore Committee has been working diligently to ensure the street markers that will highlight Ardmore’s historic status are well placed and meet the city’s requirements. Most importantly, they are a distinctive addition to our neighborhood that speaks to our era of significance. Many thanks to Carol Eickmeyer for her hard work to make these signs a reality.
Ardmore resident Karen Day produced the marker design, which is in the Art Deco style that was popular in the early 20th century. The signs are double sided and made of up 5 separate pieces. The face of the sign (represented by the marker image below) is copper with black lettering. This is framed by 4 pieces of 1/4″ aluminum that are painted black and features a cutout design, in keeping with the Art Deco style. The post is a 2.5″ square, hollow piece of aluminum.
These markers have been installed throughout Ardmore at the following locations:
1. NW corner of Corona and Seneca, facing Seneca
2. SW corner of Academy and Sunset, facing Academy
3. NE corner of Elizabeth and Lockland Park
4. SE corner of Lockland and Ardsley
