Portland Women's History Trail

Though the first image sparked by the word "trail" may be a secluded natural area, other types of trails also exist. For example, the Portland Women's History Trail, which is divided into seven sections and highlighting two centuries of groundbreaking women, encapsulates history in the places it was shaped. Weaving through downtown Portland, ME and several neighborhoods, visitors can walk along several miles of historical landmarks. Thanks to this digital exhibition, people can also expand their historical knowledge sans any exercise. Readers may want to begin with the About the Trails section, which provides a brief background. Then, click through the seven sections to digitally meander historical landmarks, people, and events. The embedded text and images make for an authentic and educational adventure. Viewers can also explore directly on the Map or by clicking through an alphabetized list of Sites. The project is a collaboration between the University of Southern Maine, Maine College of Art (MECA), Maine Humanities Council, and Maine Historical Society. Funding was provided by the Maine Economic Improvement Fund (MEIF) for Digital Maine.
