UpstateHistorical is an interactive website and smartphone app that will bring the rich history of upstate New York to life for tourists, residents, and anyone interested in learning more about this important region. It will use Curatescape, a web-based platform that uses GPS to allow administrators to pin key historical locations and upload story-based text, photographs, audio, and video content to tell the story of a particular place, the people that lived there, and events at that location. Funding from this project comes from the New York Council for the Humanities as well as additional support from the Syracuse University Humanities Center and the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild.
Resources and content has been generously provided by the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild and the Winterthur Library
