Small Town USA Database


e-Podunk   www.epodunk.com is a fun database for looking at communities across the nation.  I found information about small communities in Montana.  They showed pictures when available.  The viewer was invited to share pictures if they had them.

This would be a great place for looking at local history.  They feature community attractions such as museums and other places of interest. Some even tell how the community got it’s name. 

I can see using it with many sites developed in partnership with State Historical Museums.
Montana Memory Project (http://cdm15018.contentdm.oclc.org/ )
American Memory Project (http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/index.html )
Montana Place Names Companion Website (http://mtplacenames.org/ )
Montana Historical Society http://montanahistoricalsociety.org/
Nation Wide Links for State Historical Societies http://www.stenseth.org/us/statehs.html

Makeuseof.com has a great post featuring three historical maps mashup that would add to the historical element: History Pin; LookBackMap; SepiaTown
