Talk about zeitgeist. Looks like the Boise City Department of Arts and History is just as pumped about the new website HistoryPin as we are.
For this year’s Preservation Month, dubbed Celebrate Boise’s Treasures, the Arts and History department has invited Boiseans to post personal photos of their favorite buildings and cultural landmarks on HistoryPin’s interactive world map. According to a press release from the department, City Historian Brandi Burns thinks HistoryPin can be a useful tool:
Preservation Month is a unique opportunity to express our enthusiasm for Boise's cultural landscapes. The use of HistoryPin will enable the community and the department to create a dialogue about what matters in Boise, and we, as individuals, will get to define what we deem preservation-worthy.
