    This is a 5 minute video video introduction to the "Here is Where" Project.

    "President Harry Truman once said that "the only thing new in this world is the history you don't know." Andrew Carroll is determined that many more Americans will know about their country's past, and particularly about quirky, previously obscure events and locations.He calls his project "Here is Where..." and he is traveling through all 50 states photographing and writing about long-forgotten people and places.\n\nIn this First Person account, Andrew provides examples of the historical 'nuggets' he's unearthing."

Here Is Where - In Search of America's Great, Forgotten History - 0 views

  •  
    "HERE IS WHERE is an all-volunteer initiative created by the Legacy Project to find and spotlight little known and unmarked historic sites throughout the United States.

    These sites relate to events that changed the course of history and represent a wide range of individuals-from explorers, pioneers, inventors, scientists, activists, and people of faith, to artists, writers, musicians, builders, and athletes.

    HERE IS WHERE is a grass roots campaign, and the Legacy Project encourages Americans across the country to seek out and recommend their own favorite spots. The larger mission of this effort is to promote the importance of preserving historic sites and to foster a passion for history itself."
