History Project Site Index

Index of the materials and resources hosted on the Hopewell Valley History Project site. The available materials currently include some 80 books and documents, 140 pamphlets and leaflets, 100 maps and aerials, panoramic aerials, and 1700 images and artworks.

These different types of materials require different types of interfaces for convenient access to browsing and searching, including database tables for documents and maps, image galleries for photos and art, and a custom interactive mapping application for geographic exploration.

The individual files are grouped by town, and then by year and description. Materials related to specific places are also identified and grouped by street address.

The main History Project site hosts the archive of materials. The Blog and Facebook page then provide updated on new additions. The interface for each type of material is listed below
