Here's the site to search the ones in Texas
https://atlas.thc.state.tx.us/

"The Atlas features more than 300,000 site records, including data on Official Texas Historical Markers and National Register of Historic Places properties in Texas. Also included are cemeteries, courthouses, museums, and sawmills across the state. You can search by keyword, county, address, historic designation, or site name to get instant access to detailed descriptions, historic photographs, and interactive maps."

Thanks!

Along with a few different categories, this site also lists by state. :)

I found a ton of them just in the "near me" list. (New York)

When it is too hot to letterbox, I play at Waymarking and use the following links to help find Waymarks and to get the information needed to log a Waymark. Many of them would also provide terrific locations for letterboxes.

*National Register of Historic Places
*National Historic Landmarks
*Roadside America
*Virtual Globetrotting
*Pennsylvania Historical Markers - more complete than the listing on the Texas website and probably similar to websites for each state. Besides Pennsylvania, I have one bookmarked for Virginia, Florida, Delaware and New Jersey.
*Highpoint of Each State

Waymarking is cool. I keep saying I'm going to get into it and never do. Roadside America is one of my all time favorite sites! That globetrotting looks interesting.

Survey Benchmarks are cool also.
