Small Town USA Database

e-Podunk 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 Historical Society
Nation Wide Links for State Historical Societies has a great post featuring three historical maps mashup that would add to the historical element: History Pin; LookBackMap; SepiaTown
