Historic New England is a 101-year-old nonprofit organization that works to preserve objects, structures, and sites throughout the region. The organization, working with HistoryPin, is part of a growing trend among historians and archivists to use mapping technology to connect photos, objects, and other information to maps to engage an audience.
Boston.com has an interesting story by Jeremy C. Fox, with accompanying photos, describing the work of Historic New England and its web site with historic photographs. You can read the article at http://goo.gl/jZORP.
Note: Historic New England should not be confused with the New England Historic Genealogical Society. They are separate organizations.
