on June 19, 2024


 Jalisco ranks 109th among states and provinces with markers in this database. The Free and Sovereign State of Jalisco is a state in Mexico located in the Pacific Coast. It is also in the and Central Highlands region. Jalisco is some 49 thousand square kilometers in size with a population of around 8.3 million people. The state is divided into 125 Municipalities and seven of them have entries in this database. In Jalisco we have discovered historical markers in seven cities and towns lying in ten postal delivery areas.

There are at least 51 historical markers in Jalisco, by our count. We have cataloged 49 historical markers and four war memorials—each individually presented on 51 illustrated, annotated, and searchable pages of the Historical Marker Database. In addition, we are reasonably certain of another two historical markers in Jalisco that we don’t yet have, and instead show on our Want List. With only 51 historical markers there does not appear to be much history in Jalisco!

Actually, we are being facetious. While there is not enough information in the database for us to say more about the way history has been marked in the state of Jalisco, there is no doubt that many things that are important to Jaliscienses—and important to the people of Mexico—happened here. And we are also sure that many people who did interesting or important things lived or passed through this state. Furthermore, we, the editors of the Historical Marker Database, are sure that many people and organizations in the many communities that make up Jalisco went out of their way to mark where some of these things happened, and where some of these famous or infamous people stayed. So it’s not that there is no history here, it’s just that the many historical markers in Jalisco have not found their way into this database yet.
