Without a local history museum, Houston has lacked a place to bring together the city's documents and artifacts - until now. A new kind of exhibit is in the works: a digital museum, intended to make historical resources more accessible.
The museum will exist not in a building, but on a Web site featuring photos, maps, audio recordings, videos, letters, publications, and other documents. About 15 organizations, including local universities, libraries, and museums, are planning to contribute resources to the online project, which is being coordinated by the Greater Houston Preservation Alliance.
