    Most places with historic significance in the US probably have some kind of acknowledgement, but for many places it's just a roadside sign which can easily be ignored as people zip around, rather than a historic site which someone can visit and learn about the people and events associated with that site. 

    One example of a place with a sign but no historic site is Sojourner Truth's birthplace.  She was born into slavery in upstate New York and became an anti slavery activist.
