Digitizing Huron County History

Welcome to the blog of the Huron County Museum & Historic Gaol. As we start blogging, you’ll notice we primarily talk about one thing: the Henderson Digitization Project. That’s where our digital focus is these days.

In a nutshell, the Henderson Digitization Project will put more than 850 images from WWII air training bases in Huron County online in early 2014.

Images like this one:

We’ll start featuring more general content from our collections over time. For the next little while, this site is going to be (almost) all Henderson all the time. For general programming at the Museum & Gaol, find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

If you have an idea for the blog, contact us. We’ll do our best to respond in a timely fashion (just keep in mind that as much as we’d like to, we can’t be blogging all day or we wouldn’t get anything else done!)

Happy Reading.
