Creating a Historical Plaque
for Sidney Dearing in Wildwood / Nova Park
There is a park across the street from his previous house (#103).
Sample historical plaque
In the past Piedmont Beautification and Piedmont Historical Society had created the previous markers in Piedmont. Since the Historical Society has recently released their quarterly magazine called "Piedmont History" that did not include Sidney Dearing, one would expect they will not cover the cost of this. I was told by a Piedmont City Councilmember that if this is funded by the people it will happen faster.
So I have created a gofundme page instead. The internet gives a wide range of costs for a plaque: "The cost can be as much as $5,430 (plus installation costs) or as little as $410 for a standard State or National Register of Historic Places plaque."
Please write our city council
In order to show more support, we need more people to write our city council urging them to move forward on creating a historical plaque for Sidney Dearing in the Wildwood and Nova Park across the street from where his house was. Please write our city council members here.
