The event will be at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at 825 W. Spring St. in Palestine.
Rogers was a former marshal and a colorful Palestine native, according to information from the historical commission.
Rogers served as Palestine's marshal during the beginning years of the railroad boom. From 1874 to 1888, Rogers was the face of law and patrolled all of the downtown, old town and railroad yards. Controversy and scandal swirled around Rogers until his death in 1888, the historical information states.
The Anderson County Historical Commission members spend many volunteer hours researching, documenting and preparing the marker applications. Jimmy Odom, with the Anderson County Historical Commission, led the research necessary to get a marker approved by the State of Texas for Rogers.
The dedication ceremony will be a free public event. Refreshments will be hosted by the Palestine Visitor Center after the ceremony.
