History and Culture: National Park Services Cultural Resources

Well, as you can see, the title is a mouthful, but this Web site is truly filled with history of different people and places. I was inspired to find this site by exploring my hometown. We have these little cemeteries that date back to when the area was first settled and I’ve always wanted to explore them. I finally got the chance this summer and it was well worth the wait. Here you can explore the history of National Parks, hometowns and even the people who changed our world.

You’ll find navigation on the side menu. The categories are: History & Culture, People, Places, Stories, Preservations, Collections, For Travelers, For Teachers and For Kids.

History & Culture – This link will bring you back to the main page from your other navigation. Here you will find a few feature stories and the “Did You Know?” section.

People – Here you will see information on the people who have shaped our culture. From early settlers to the Presidents who led the nation to inventors and thinkers, they’re all here.

Places – “History happened. Find out where.” That certainly says it all for this section. From parks to buildings to landmarks, there are tons of places where you can find history being preserved and this section will help you discover them. I’d like to point out that the 75 foot long elephant is absolutely worth taking a look at. And of course, I gravitated right to the Ohio and Erie Canal section where I was surprised by information I didn’t know about Ohio!

Stories – What would history be without the questions who, what, where, when, why and how? Here you will discover the stories of a nation from the impersonal to the very personal, from the raw to the refined and from the birth of the nation to the present day.

Preservation – Learn how they decide what is important to save, how they preserve it and pass on an appreciation of its worth to the next generation. I was amazed at the amount of things that are preserved. The numbers are astounding! From wooden elephants to lighthouses to buildings, you’ll find it all here.

For Travelers – From lighthouses to national heritage areas to an archaeology site, in this section, you can find places to visit.

For Teachers – This section is devoted to helping teachers; teaching about these places, people and preservation.

For Kids – This is an awesome section devoted to kids discovering landmarks.

This site is filled with interesting information, images and ideas. Check it out!
