Two Illinois State Historical Markers will be unveiled in Barrington Hills at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 -- a first for the Barrington area.

Both markers represent sites of early settler history. One is at the David Haeger Schoolhouse and Cemetery on Meadow Hill Road, and the other is at the Ira C. Goodrich Homestead on Plum Tree Road. Each large historical marker will have a text detailing the site's history.

A dedication ceremony will begin at the Haeger Schoolhouse and Cemetery with special honor by War of 1812 soldier re-enactors and the Barrington VFW post. The second historical marker unveiling and closing ceremony will take place on the Ira C. Goodrich Homestead at 3 p.m. on Plum Tree Road.
