The SCA News, sometimes referred to as “Road Notes,” has been produced quarterly since 1993. The eight-page publication features articles and announcements on commercial archeology. It has been printed in full-color since 2013. Back issues are available for immediate digital download at $2 each.
Road Notes has four regular features:
- Five Favs – contributors promote their top commercial archeology selections for a place (such as a city or highway), roadside topic (such as motels or diners), or artist’s portfolio (paintings or photos);
- Sign Snippets – Debra Jane Seltzer covers vintage signs that have recently been restored, adapted, removed, or destroyed;
- In Brief – features condensed versions of important commercial archeology articles submitted by SCA members; and
- Editor’s Column – Douglas Towne touches on underreported roadside topics and people.
The SCA News has been edited by Douglas Towne and designed by Rick Kilby since 2004.
