Paying Our Landowner Partners Since 1902!
Lamar Advertising Company is one of the oldest and largest outdoor advertising companies in the United States. Founded in 1902, the firm has been a leader in the outdoor advertising industry for many years.
Our audience, the driving public, has increased steadily over the past 30 years. Since 1970 the population has increased by 25 percent, but the number of vehicles on the road has increased by 147 percent!
The reason the world's oldest advertising medium has survived and thrived for so many years is simple - it works! It works for advertising customers, and it works for landowners who see the benefit of using their property to generate additional income.

Our Community Partnership
Together, Lamar and our landowner partners contribute significantly to our community in terms of public service. Together, we donate many millions of dollars in advertising space annually to public service organizations and projects and a multitude of nonprofit groups. As a Lamar landowner you play an important role in this public service partnership. At the same time, we strictly adhere to local ordinances to help preserve scenic beauty. In many cases we work directly with local officials to help develop comprehensive sign codes that are good for the community's environment.
Greatest Return with Minimal Use of Property
Our engineers will work with you to design the proper structure configuration in order to use the least amount of space necessary. Most structures will not interfere with any use of your property. All of our units meet the most rigid certified engineering standards which normally exceed municipal codes of construction. We will handle all necessary permitting and surveys will be done prior to construction, to assure compliance with all required regulations.
