Here at the historical society we are always exploring new ways to make the rich history of Harbor Springs more accessible to the public. With this in mind we are proud to announce the launch of our own channel on Historypin! is a website that utilizes Google Maps to allow photographs, videos and other content to be “pinned” to a digital map. Users can search anywhere on the globe and find interesting photographs and stories tacked to specific locales and can add their own material as well.

Below is an example of how amazing this site really is. Shown is an old photograph from our collections which has been pinned to Google maps. We then placed this image over the existing image of the building in Google's Street View. Using the sliding "fade" button at the bottom of the screen allows users to see what current buildings and places looked like in the past!Screenshot 2014-01-09 15.24.44

Using this site we will be able to share countless historical images and stories - which you can view right from home, comment on, and share with friends and family! Visit our channel to discover what we’ve pinned so far and stay tuned as we add more images and even walking tours to our page.
